Dravid still feels the pressure

Rahul Dravid still feels under pressure to prove himself every time he steps foot on a cricket pitch despite his glittering career.

Dravid has scored over twelve thousand runs for India averaging over 52 from 155 tests and was once given the Garfield Sobers award for the World’s best Test cricketer in 2004. Anyone who follows the Android betting will know just how good he is.

Add this to his 339 one day international appearances and you have a superb CV. Despite this though, the former captain admits that he still gets nervous before matches due to his desire to help the team.

“You want to make a contribution, but you know that there is a lot that you have accomplished,” Dravid said.

Despite his age, Dravid remains an important cog in the Indian top order alongside Sachin Tendulker and V.V.S. Laxman in what is one of the batting finest line-ups the world has ever seen.

The Indore-born is currently with the Indian side on their tour of the West Indies with the Test series kicking off on Monday at Sabannah Park, Jamaica as the Indians look to kick on after a successful one day campaign against a struggling Windies side who have been without stalwarts such as Chris Gayle and Shivnarine Chanderpaul. Those looking at the Betfair mobile site will know this was hardly the toughest of tests for India.

Dravid hasn’t played a test match since the series against South Africa which took place throughout the winter and admits that it’s hard to remain focussed with such a long lay-off between matches.

“It has been five, six months since we played a Test match. There has been a bit of IPL in between. It is a challenge to keep it going but the good thing from my point of view is that we have got seven Test matches in a row now [three in West Indies and four in England], once we start from here” he added.
