We are not a Test squad, says Dravid

New Delhi, May 01 (UNI) Bangalore Royal Challengers skipper Rahul Dravid has refused to buy the theory that his presence, along with that of the likes of Wasim Jaffer, makes it look more like a Test squad than a Twenty20 outfit.

After their 10-run defeat against Delhi Daredevils in last night's Indian Premier League match, Dravid told reporters that ''I don't think so. Twenty20 fates are decided in an over or two.

Luck, rub of the green are factors here.'' ''And it's not that our team does not have youngsters. If there is any missing link, I think we lack that x-factor,'' he said.

According to the skipper, Daredevils bowlers made all the difference in match.

''I think the difference (between the sides) were (Glenn) McGrath's wickets, both upfront and in the later stage. (Daniel) Vettori gave next to nothing in his four overs, (V) Yomahesh bowled tight too,'' he said.

''Twenty20 matches are decided in one-two overs and we needed two big overs, which we just didn't get. Chasing 10 per over, we were right on track but could not eventually make it,'' Dravid added.
