The nature of the game and the nature of the many games we are playing, “Dravid told host broadcaster Star Sports before the start of the fifth T20I.

“You know handling the squad, handling the workload of the players, and some changes in the captaincy, so that means I had to work with a few people, it was challenging but at the same time it was a lot of fun.” Dravid said.


“A lot of other guys have had the opportunity to lead and make us more leaders in the group. As a group, we’re constantly learning, and in the last 8-10 months we’ve had the opportunity to test more people. Which I think has been great. If I look back over the last eight months, South Africa has been disappointing in terms of the Test series. “
