Dravid looks for series win

India captain Rahul Dravid is targeting series victory after his side leveled the seven-match NatWest series 3-3 at the Oval on Wednesday. A week ago, India was 3-1 down, but Dravid insists his side was downhearted. “We still felt we could win,” he said. “At 1-3, we knew we’d lost a couple of close games that could have gone the other way.” The sixth match was the most enthralling of a compelling series – which ends at Lord’s on Saturday – with England battling back from a poor start to post 316 for six. India then seemed to be cruising as Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly put on 150 for the first wicket, only for the momentum to tip back England’s way after a series of wickets.

Robin Uthappa, through, kept his nerve amid the chaos, scoring an unbeaten 47 to win the game with two balls to spare. “We got a bit of the rub of the green, but we have shown a lot of resilience after a long tour,” Dravid went on. “It should be a cracker of a game at the Lord’s.”
