Dravid has leadership qualities: Vengsarkar

India's chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar has come to the defence of Rahul Dravid after the skipper came under fire for histeam's first-round elimination at the World Cup.
India, runners-up in 2003, lost two out of their threegroup matches, to Bangladesh and former champions Sri Lanka and exited the tournament.
"He is an experienced campaigner and has all the leadership qualities," Vengsarkar told Times of India.
Vengsarkar recalled former Australia captain Richie Benaud's comments on the role of the captain: "Captaincy is 90 percent luck and 10 percent ability."
"He(Dravid) has done quite well thus far. After all, as they say, a captain is only as good as his team."
Vengsarkar said the defeat to Bangladesh was a one-off.
