Win at Oval will reinstate lost pride

Posted by Admin On 10:52 AM

Rahul Dravid emphasized India must restore lost pride by charming the fourth and final Test against a rampaging England side at The Oval. India's most prolific scorer with two centuries in the series, Dravid approved it has been an unforgettable series for the visitors for a mixture of reasons.
It has been a tough series for a mixture of reasons. The pitches here have been conducive to good seam bowling and the quality of English bowling. All the three pacers have bowled remarkably well. They bowled beautiful length and inclined the ball up, said Dravid.
Dethroned as the No.1 Test team and staring at a 0-4 whitewash in the series, Dravid said India have to win The Oval Test.We have to win it. That is the aim. We are not the No.1 anymore. The goal for us is to fight our way back there. It is about restore some pride and show what we can do. But if we want to climb back to No.1 Test spot then every Test matters,he said.
When pointed out that England have taken India by revelation, Dravid said:We expected them to be good, but we predictable us to be better. To be honest we haven't been good enough.Asked whether England didn't allow the company to be better, Dravid said: In some ways it is true. They have bowled really well and they are a good side. They have young skilled bowlers in these conditions. They have too won in places where they have not won before.
Dravid went on to add: They have not won in India in the last 25 years. They have to come and do it. They have the ability and I have no doubt that they have the team to do it as well. But still it has to be done and I hope we can stop them for doing it.
