Dubai:Indian vice-captain Rahul Dravid who is in Dubai for a talk-show of a private broadcaster, said India would have to sort out the second opener's slot and the issue of wicketkeeping in the One-day series ahead of the coming season.

"As the team keeps developing, things like these will crop up and will have to be sorted out. I am sure we will look into these areas when we sit down to plan for the season ahead and I am positive the people concerned will take decisions that will be in the best interest of the team," Dravid said.

On whether he was in favour of Yuvraj Singh opening in the Tests, he said it was for the selectors to decide whether Yuvraj was good enough for the job.

"That's what they (selectors) are there for, to make decisions and judgements."

Dravid also said playing well against Australians gave him more satisfaction than playing against other sides including Pakistan.

"Every series is important and I can't say one series is bigger than the other. Obviously Australia is the best team in the world and when you play well against them, it gives you a lot more satisfaction," he said.

On being termed the best batsman in the Indian team by Gavaskar, Dravid said he did not particularly believe in rating individuals in a team sport.

"Obviously it's nice to hear nice things being said about you. But at the end of the day, you don't really play for those things. You play to contribute to a successful team effort, and in doing that if you do well, it is makes you feel really happy."
