Rahul Dravid, who has been out bowled in the last six of his nine Test innings and a total of 13 times in the last 12 months, defended his batting technique declaring he could find nothing wrong with it.

“Any number scares you after 30 I think,” Dravid, who celebrated his 39th birthday on Wednesday, was quoted saying in the ‘Sydney Morning Herald .

“When you do get out three times you do think about it, so I’ve worked on a few things. But I don’t think it’s anything major or too wrong.

“I can’t see anything that I’ve drastically changed or anything I’ve done drastically different.

“So I hope it’s just a coincidence and I hope I can set it right.”

‘The Wall defended the decision of several players to conduct a go-karting session on Monday night, saying the team needed a light-hearted social meet-up in order to better bond.

“You don’t learn through sitting in meetings and having power-point presentations, that’s not how teams work,” Dravid said.

“A lot of conversations happen in the course of dressing rooms, in the course of dinners, in the course of when we go go-karting.

“There’s a healthy conversation going on in and around the team.

“I think the spirit in the team has been good. The enthusiasm to practice and the overall energy around the squad has been good.”
