"We need to get more runs from the lower order but we will comeback. The batsmen are getting used to the slow wickets and will get better," Dravid said after India's four-wicket loss in the third one-dayer on Tuesday.

"We can win the next two matches. The one positive in this series has been that all three matches have been close and we have not played anywhere near our best," he said.

"I am pretty confident that we can do it" in the remaining two matches at Trinidad on Friday and Sunday, he said.

Dravid blamed the batsmen for the defeat at Warner Park.

"The last 15 (which produced only 42 runs) cost us really. We played really badly and the three run outs were critical," he said.
