Players must be more vigilant, warns Dravid

Ahmedabad: Rajasthan Royals’ mentor Rahul Dravid expressed happiness that no spot-fixing or match-fixing controversy has happened till now in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. However, he said the players need to keep their eyes and ears open all the time.

“Its good that no such incident (match fixing) has surfaced this time. But, we (players and officials) all must be more vigilant and keep our eyes and ears open, because, there will be people who will be wanting to spoil the game,” said Dravid at a press conference here on Wednesday.

The last IPL was marred by spot-fixing, which saw the arrest of three Rajasthan Royals players -- Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.

Dravid along with the Royals captain Shane Watson, chief coach Paddy Upton and some other team players addressed a press conference here, on the eve of Royals’s match against Sunrisers Hyderabad at Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera.
