Indian captain Rahul Dravid on Saturday gave a thumbs up to the Super Sub rule - which has come under severe criticism for favouring the team which wins the toss.

"The rule as it is now, gives a huge advantage to the captain winning the toss. So, I think, they (ICC) should continue with it and allow the team to pick their Super Sub after the toss," said Dravid.

"Although I am very much happy with 11 playing 11, it might be a bit more interesting if we allow the Super Sub to be named after the toss," he added.
