ICL: Indian Cricket League

Lessons to learn after defeat, says Dravid


Refusing to read too much into the loss but disappointed nonetheless, the Indian cricket captain Rahul Dravid felt his batsmen played too many shots in the air which ultimately cost them the second one-dayer against the West Indies at Sabina Park here.

“I don’t think we should read much into this loss. It is not a cause of worry. However, there are lessons to be learnt. We played too many shots in the air and got out cheaply,” he said. Dravid was full of praise for Yuvraj Singh, whose knock of 93 was the only highlight of the day for the Indians.

“Lately, he has been playing so good that it is difficult to say if this was his best innings, but it was right up there. It was because of his innings that we reached so close,” he added. Rahul also said Greg Chappell, who completed his first year in office as the India coach, has brought a change in perception in the Indian team.

“It has been fantastic. I have enjoyed a lot working with him. He has brought new ideas and freshness in the team. We don’t panic now if we are losing. Similarly, we don’t jump with joy at every win. It’s a good perspective. Dressing room is a lot more relaxed now,” he remarked.
