Despite the last ball loss to Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the MA Chidambaram stadium on Saturday, the Rajasthan Royals skipper was his usual unperturbed self. Dravid managed a few smiles to stress on how happy he was with the way his team was shaping up.
Not a person to make excuses, Dravid admitted that the level of bowling from CSK was top-class. "I think they bowled really well. Kulasekara bowled a superb last over and we finished about 15 runs short. Also I admit that we could have sent Brad (Hodge) in earlier."
Dravid claimed that there was a reason behind Stuart Binny bowling the last over. And the 27 year-old did not disappoint. "I wanted to stretch the game to the last over. So I bowled my full-time bowlers first. And it almost won us the gameas Binny bowled very well."
CSK coach Stephen Fleming admitted that the game should have been finished earlier.
