New rules will make WC exciting: Dravid

Rahul Dravid is expecting next month's World Cup to be an aggressive affair as he feels the revamped ODI rules will push teams into selecting attacking bowlers over part-timers. Speaking to 'ESPNCricinfo', Dravid said, “With the two new balls, the fast bowlers will get that level of assistance up front. The grounds are bigger too so it won't be that easy to clear the ropes. I think it will be a challenge for the captains. For example, when you have five fielders in the ring, it's very hard to play a part-time bowler. You are almost being forced to play five specialist bowlers. That is a real positive,” Dravid said.
