119-run loss to Australia A is disappointing, says Dravid
India A coach Rahul Dravid on Friday described the 119-run loss to Australia A as disappointing and said his team will look to sort out their batting frailties against spin and come back stronger in the next match of the triangular one-day series.
“I think it is a disappointing performance all round with the ball first, in the field as well and with the bat. The good thing I guess is that we have got hopefully four games and we get to try and correct this,” Dravid said after India folded for 215 chasing 334 in the second match on Friday.
Dravid said the execution was poor on the field on <g data-gr-id="23">Friday</g> but his boys are motivated and would look to grab this great opportunity to impress the selectors with a better performance in the next games.
“All these guys are youngsters and they are all trying to really impress the selectors and make a mark for themselves. I am sure they will be keen in each and every game that they play,” he said.
“It is a great opportunity. It is a great opportunity to learn. It is a great opportunity to impress and so they do not feel that the issue is with motivation. That is not the problem. The problem on Friday is just the execution, which was poor with the ball and bat,” Dravid said.
