Although his exclusion from the red-ball series against England has raised question marks over his future in the longer format, Kumar, now in Sri Lanka with the limited-overs team, believes he can ‘contribute in any format’.
“I am not looking to prioritise white-ball or red-ball cricket. I am working on preparing for all formats,” Kumar, Vice-Captain of the side in the island nation, said yesterday.
“(If) I am selected in the red-ball team, I will definitely try to contribute.”
With the IPL and the T20 World Cup lined up later this year, there are not too many Tests to look forward to, but Kumar is not thinking much about that. “I am not looking way ahead. I will prepare myself for all three formats,” he said. (Agencies)
