India target series decider

By unknown | Jan 02, 2007 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

India captain Rahul Dravid refused to dwell on his team's defeat in Durban, instead turning his attention to the series decider against South Africa.

Dravid said: "It's exciting. We've been competitive with the South Africa team.

"We've stayed with them over the course of both these Test matches so we are quite excited about the next Test match and hope it's a good one."

Dravid's team were beaten by 174 runs, 11 days after winning in Johannesburg. The Cape Town Test starts today.

The Indian skipper failed with the bat in Durban, making scores of 11 and 5, but received rough umpiring decisions on both occasions.

However, Dravid was gracious in defeat. He said: "South Africa played some very good cricket right through the five days.

"Ashwell Prince's century in the first innings and Makhaya Ntini's spell was the key to their success.

"But it's been a little bit disappointing from us." - BBC
