During his remarks at a press conference, Dravid discussed how India’s bowling attack, despite the fact that it does not appear to be as glamorous, nevertheless manages to get the job done. While he was trying to explain this, he got stuck on a word, but thanks to his quick wit, he was able to convey the meaning without actually saying the word.
Ahead of their match in the Super 4 round of the Asia Cup against their bitter rivals Pakistan, the head coach of Team India, Rahul Dravid, was effusive in his appreciation for his team’s bowling assault. During his remarks at a press conference, Dravid discussed how India’s bowling attack, despite the fact that it does not appear to be as glamorous, nevertheless manages to get the job done. While he was trying to explain this, he got stuck on a word, but thanks to his quick wit, he was able to convey the meaning without actually saying the word.
When Dravid was asked about Pakistan’s bowling lineup, which did well against India, he conceded that they had a decent lineup, but he also defended his team’s bowlers. The question concerned Pakistan’s success against India.
“I won’t argue against the fact that they had a good bowling game. It goes without saying that they have a strong bowling team. However, they were only able to score 147 thanks to our effective bowling “Dravid stated.
“Yes, there are instances when the data will show that someone bowled at 145 kmph, and there are other times when it will show that someone bowled at 147 kmph, but at the end of the day, bowling analysis is the most essential thing.”
“Whether you are swinging the ball or not, whether you are bowling at 135 or 145 or 125, you are evaluated by the results,” Dravid said. “Whether you are swinging the ball or not.”
“In addition to that, the bowling analysis of our quick bowlers was quite solid. Consequently, I have a healthy amount of respect for the bowling that they have, but I am also very certain that our bowling assault is extremely good as well “he remarked.
After that, he began the next line with “Might not be as,” but then he paused before finishing it.
“Wanted to use the word, but I can’t say that word,” Dravid remarked, much to the delight of the reporters who were in the room at the time. “The word in my mind is coming out of my mouth, but I can’t use it.”
A reporter questioned whether the term that he was looking for was “exuberant.”
“No, not ‘exuberant’. It’s a little strange… it has four letters and begins with a ‘S,’ but it’ll do, “He remarked this, which resulted in additional laughter from those in attendance.
Dravid summed up his comments by saying, “We might not appear beautiful, but we have certain guys who generate outcomes.”
In their first match, India bowled out Pakistan and then held Hong Kong to a total that was 40 runs lower than what they had scored.
However, the squad was dealt a significant setback when star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja suffered a knee injury and was subsequently ruled ineligible to play in the remaining stages of the competition.
