India A coach Dravid, who has just finished a long series against Australia and South Africa A teams, opines that Indian youngsters are still good players of spin and can go a long way if they do a few nips and tucks.
"We are suddenly not bad players of spin but maybe the high pressure cricket these boys are playing gets to them. Like T20 cricket, where the value of the single is not so much. So to create a single in between the big shoot is what a Mohammad Azharuddin or a VVS Laxman could do on slow turning tracks," he said.
"In terms of short making ability against spin, I think this generation is incredible. They step out and hit sixes against spinners, some of the creativity I see against spin is terrific. I think one of the areas where there is a bit of a concern for Indian cricket is that there is sometimes not a lot of balance, people are either defending or hitting big shots," Dravid said.
"They (youngsters) are not struggling to play long form cricket. There are a lot of very good long form cricket players like AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Steven Smith, they are tremendous T20 players and playing long-form cricket as they did in any generation,” he said.
