Rahul Dravid clarifies his comments

New Delhi, Aug 6: Former India captain Rahul Dravid has claimed that his comments on restoring the credibility of the game, after the recent IPL spot-fixing scandal, have been taken out of context.

"It is disappointing that my comments have been taken out of context by some sections of the media," Dravid was quoted as saying in a tweet posted by 'ESPNCricinfo', the website to which he gave the interview.

Dravid had expressed anguish over the recent IPL spot-fixing scandal and its fallout, saying that restoring the credibility of the game is of utmost importance failing which cricketers may lose respect of their fans.

"There are so many fans and so many people who care deeply about this game and it is because of these fans that we are who we are as cricketers."

"Administrators are there because of the fans and the cricketers to run this game, so credibility of a game, or a board, or even a government for that matter, is important irrespective of what you do. If you are in public life it is important," he had said.
