Hyderabad:South Zone skipper Rahul Dravid said the four-day Duleep Trophy match against West Zone, to be played from Tuesday, would be very competitive as the opponents have experienced players in their side.

"The match will be a competitive one as the opponents have some of the experienced players like Sachin Tendulkar, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan and Irfan Pathan," Dravid said after a three-hour net practice.

"It's a chance for youngsters to perform well to gain the attention of the selectors", Dravid said.

Asserting that there were no injuries in his side, he said "our players are fully fit".

The pitch at the Visakha stadium appears to last the full four days which should be good sign to both the teams, Dravid said adding, they will go with a positive set of mind into the game but will not underestimate the rival strength.
