Former BCCI chief selector MSK Prasad says Shaik Rasheed reminds him of Rahul Dravid, in technique, temperament, and solidity. “He can be our future No. 3 in the red ball and white-ball cricket,” the former India chief selector says of the Under 19 vice-captain, who gave a stellar batting performance in the Under 19 World Cup.

“We have just won the Under 19 World Cup and we are over the moon. The victory was a tribute to the bonding among the players and the coaches have ensured we stayed here (in the Caribbean) like a family. My future… I will take it the way it comes. I need to improve my game and I will work on it.”

Shaikh Rasheed said to Cricbuzz as he prepares to catch the flight home on Sunday morning

MSK and Rasheed come from the same town in Andhra, Guntur, and the former India stumper has had a role in the development of the young batsman when he was the CEO of Andhra Cricket Association.

“He likes to score in front of the wicket and bats late, giving himself sufficient time to play the ball. Those are very good qualities. What was most impressive was his temperament. He never looked rattled when India was under pressure.”
