IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

Not about proving a point – Dravid


DravidRahul Dravid limited-over career appeared to be over when India’s selectors plumped for youngsters in late 2007. But now, after a lengthy stint on the sidelines, the 36-year-old Dravid is back for next month’s tri-series in Sri Lanka and the Champions Trophy.

He said he didn’t look at the recall as a chance to prove his detractors wrong. “I have never played my cricket that way, wanting to prove a point,” Dravid told the Deccan Herald. “To me, it’s about trying your best to be the best you can be, day after day, in whichever format you are playing and for whichever team you are playing.”

Dravid, who has had a long break after the IPL ended in May, said: “It’s nice to be back, I am very happy. I am looking forward to the Sri Lanka tri-series and the Champions Trophy in South Africa, to giving it my best. It will be nice to catch up with the boys once again.”

Dravid has played 333 ODIs and is among a few batsman to have made over 10,000 runs in the format. “I will do my best for the team’s cause,” he said. “I have always believed in preparing well before a match or a competition and it will be no different this time.”
