We don't over complicate things: Dravid

Bangalore, Apr 15: Rajasthan Royals skipper Rahul Dravid has followed a bit of Shane Warne's leadership qualities and said his side are capable of beating any side, including his former team Royal Challengers Bangalore, their next opponent in an IPL game here on Sunday, April 15.

"I noticed Warnie keeping things simple and giving players, especially youngsters to express their views in last IPL. I am doing a bit the same this year.

"We don't over complicate things, neither have long meetings and practice sessions. We do things with intensity," the Rajasthan skipper told reporters during the pre-match press conference here on Saturday.

Dravid believes his team could beat any given side as they did in the first two games.

"We have lot of potential to surprise lot of teams," he added.

Though they lost two games, which were quite close, Dravid said, "It is not that we have been completely out-classed."

"We know we are a tough to team play at home ... We haven't had a great record away. We want to improve upon it... It is quite a young squad so there are chances we lose on away pitches," he said.

Dravid is eager to play Shaun Tait, but the problem is with accommodating the bowler with the cap on foreign players. He also praised other foreign players like Owais Shah and Brad Hodge.

"With Shaun ... we want to get the balance right. Again he is having a couple of issues. He is an exciting prospect to have at back of your hands. "Owais and Hodge bat in the middle and we recognise Hodge as an extremely good finisher," he said.

Speaking about the wicket, he said it had little grass and few cracks.

"Having said that Muttiah Muralidaran and Daniel Vettori are quality bowlers. It doesn't count whether they are among wickets or not," he said.
