Wickets likely to play slow: Dravid

Indian captain Rahul Dravid offered his comments after winning the warmup game against the Netherlands.
"We spoke about this game and wanted to be as clinical and professional as possible.We did that."
"We decided to rest Ajit Agarkar and Zaheer Khan, our frontline bowlers, just to give a bit of a bowl to others."
"The wickets will remain a bit slow," he said. "In tighter and closer games, the one batsman who gets set on these wickets will have to go on.
"It is not going to be easy for a new batsman to come in and rotate the strike easily.
"In this tournament we will see (only) one or two big scores in each innings.
He felt conditions could be the same in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad where India play their group B matches against 1996 winners Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and debutants Bermuda.
"Trinidad can't be very different from this," he said.
"We just have to be flexible and play according to the game."
