Port-of-Spain: India’s skipper Rahul Dravid was gracious in defeat after the ODI loss against the West Indies. He had no qualms in accepting that the hosts had outplayed the Men in Blue. “Congratulations to the West Indies. They kept improving in every match,” he said. About the final ODI, Dravid said India had done well to restrict West Indies to a manageable 255. “We bowled well to contain them. I thought they would score more after a good start. Our chances were bright in the chase. But we kept losing wickets at regular intervals,” he added. Dravid was, however, bullish about India’s chances in the four-Test series starting June 2 and said his team has everything to play for in the longer version.
