Realism? Dravid promises beyond the world!

Blog Report
Indian skipper Rahul Dravid says that winning the World Cup is not the be-all and end-all of a cricketer's career.
Dravid "I do not use that word - yes, the World Cup is a big event, but I don't believe you base your career and everything on the fact of winning a World Cup."
"There is a lot more you can achieve over the period and to hang everything on the base of a tournament that spans for two months every four years is not something you do. We will try to win, but that is all."
"The goal is to play good cricket, it is about going there and playing the best we can and if we do this a lot of things will fall into place.
"We have got some 1900 one-day internationals between the group and hopefully that will offset any deficiencies anywhere else."
Dravid on pacer Irfan Pathan
"The number of man-of-the-match awards Irfan's won is testimony to the fact he's a proven match winner for us," he reasoned.He takes wickets, contributes with the bat and is good in the field, so it's obvious Pathan remains a major component in the scheme of things which India have in mind for the World Cup."
