After Ranji ton, Abhishek Nayar sets sights on India recall

Nayar seemed relieved after scoring his century and said, "After the first two games (in which he scored hundreds) I have got seven fifties and most of the time I was left not out. I was quite frustrated with that. My manager kept telling me you need to get hundreds, it is not about fifties. I told him, when the time is right, I will. I was happy to get one today.

Mumbai: All-rounder Abhishek Nayar, leading run-getter for 39-time Ranji champions Mumbai this season, on Monday said that he has made some changes to his stance with the help of former coach Pravin Amre, which seem to have paid dividends.

"I have been working very hard with Pravin Amre. I make sure I am in touch with him before every game and work on whatever we have done or make sure I have my videos sent to him, and see what I need to do," said Nayar after scoring an unbeaten ton against Baroda in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal at the Wankhede Stadium.

"(Today) I was trying to stand way out of the leg stump, I was shuffling a lot more and I didn't want to fall across. I was looking to play straight and make sure that I had enough time to hit the ball through the on-side and off-side.
