Playing alongside Dravid in IPL was learning experience: Tait
Kolkata: Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait who shared the Rajasthan Royals dressing room with Rahul Dravid in the last edition of IPL stated that the retired India ODI batsman was one of the toughest to bowl at.
The 28-year-old further said his Test career was all but over as he was concentrating more on the Twenty20 format.
Tait, who is here spearheading the South Australia Redbacks attack in the upcoming Champions League Twenty20, said he learnt a lot from the Indian batting star who bid adieu to ODI cricket in England on Friday.
"It was really good to have him in the Rajasthan Royals squad. We have learnt a lot from him. He may be known as a Test specialist, but he showed that he can play the Twenty20 format as well," Tait said, lauding Dravid`s mental toughness.
Tait, who played his last Test for Australia against India in Perth more than three years ago, said he was no longer looking towards coming out of retirement from longer version.
"I am no longer looking at Test return. Test cricket is too long that takes a toll on the body. I will stick to Twenty20," Tait who became world`s second fastest after clocking 161.1 kph at the Lord`s against England said.
On the upcoming India-Australia series next year, Tait said it would be highly competitive.
