Rahane wants to 'learn day by day, learn from everyone'

Kolkata, May 2 : Hailing Rajasthan Royals skipper Rahul Dravid as his "role model", 24-year-old right-hand batsman Ajinkya Rahane Thursday said "learning day by day" and "learning from everyone" is his way of playing cricket.

"I always think I would like to improve my game day by day and learning from each and everyone whether they are senior or junior. Actually there is no senior, junior in the game...I would like to learn from everyone," said Rahane at a programme organised by Rupa and Company Ltd. here.

Now representing Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Rahane made his ODI debut against England in the Natwest Series at Chester-le-Street in September 2011 and made his Test debut in March 2013.

"My role model is here..Rahul Dravid. I grew up watching Sachin Tendulkar and Dravid play," Rahane added.

Dravid, skipper of Rajasthan Royals, was felicitated at the programme for being awarded the Padma Bhushan this year.
