"He is (Rahane) evolving into an excellent slip fielder. He has got the temperament and demeanor to be a good slip fielder. Let's make no bones about it, he works really hard at it. He takes hundreds of catches and he is very specific about where he wants them, what he wants to do, at what height he wants them, what he's likely to get in the match," Sridhar told media persons about the Mumbaikar who holds the world record for maximum catches in a Test innings.
"Also, he has got excellent understanding of the angles, the pace, depth (dipping) of the ball, which is likely to come (at him). We spoke of perception earlier, that is something he is developing standing in the slips. He is evolving into a very good slip fielder which augurs well for the team," the fielding coach was lavish in his praise.
Sridhar emphasised on the need to have a settled combination for the slip cordon, which is essential for a team's success.
"You can say AB de Villiers is a good fielder but I think (Ravindra) Jadeja is a wonderful and natural athlete. In our team, each guy brings in something out of the table, making it a good fielding unit collectively," Sridhar said.
