New Delhi: Rahul Dravid says Cheteshwar Pujara, who succeeded the former India captain at the crucial number three position in the Test side, has it in him to be a successful player in ODIs as well.

Seen by many as one who could go on to be an able successor to the former great, Pujara has an average of 65 after 13 Tests, having scored four hundreds and three half-centuries, and Dravid believed the Saurashtra batsman "approaches" Test cricket the way he did.

"He's had a great start to his international career, in fact a much better start than I did. I think he has been brought up in the old school of batsmanship. He is developing more shots and he approaches Test cricket in the same way as I did," Dravid said.
