New Delhi: Brainder Sran's story has all the makings of a blockbuster Bollywood film.
The left-arm pacer is today the most talked about player in India's domestic circuit, thanks to his selection to the national side.
Though most cricket fans might have heard of the youngster only recently, Sran's talents were noticed by the likes of Rahul Dravid and Yuvraj Singh early on in his career.
The 23-year-old was picked by the Rajasthan Royals in 2014-15. Sran believes, his discussions with RR mentor Rahul Dravid helped in his development as a cricketer.
“Rahul bhai's emphasis on developing all facets of the game did wonders to the way I approached cricket. He will observe you for considerable amount of time, and offer his sharp and to-the-point inputs,“ he told the Times of India.
In October, Punjab skipper Yuvraj Singh had compared Sran to a young Zaheer Khan. Yuvi was impressed with the left-arm pacer's spell on a flat wicket.
