Dravid proud to be part of humdinger, Lara hails team mates
St John's, Antigua, June 7 (UNI) Even though his side could not force a win against the West Indies in the first Test, Team India skipper Rahul Dravid said he is proud to be part of a match of fluctuating fortune that ended in a nail-biting finish.
''It was a great game of cricket, West Indies bowled well on day one and then we didn't bowl that good in first innings.
They got big lead and then we fought back well on third day and then batted beautifully on fourth day. We bowled excellent today to take nine wickets but some of their tail-enders batted well.
''It was a great Test match that went down to the last ball, not many matches go down there and I feel great to be part of the team that played in that Test match,'' Dravid said.
He said that there were four options available to him to bowl the last over to get that one final wicket and Virender Sehwag was one of them.
''Sehwag was rolling his arm again and again. He looked quite eager to bowl. We were thinking of Sehwag but the end from where he was bowling wasn't assisting much turn. I stuck with pacer (S Sreesanth) because the ball was swinging,'' the Indian skipper said, adding ''We were unlucky and some edges were missed barely.
Sreesanth bowled a good over earlier and he was bowling in the right area. So I gave him the last over.'' Dravid said that he was very impressed with the bowling performance of his young seamers on the last day.
