Dropping catch more frustrating: Dravid
"People who played with me tell you nothing frustrates me more than dropping a catch," Dravid, who announced his retirement from international cricket today, told reporters here.
He said he did drop two-three catches in recent times – the ones he normally takes – but said those `mistakes` did not influence his decision on retirement. "When one gets out, one can get over it in 15-20 minutes. But when you drop a catch, it stays with me for a very long time, that hurts in a lot of ways," Dravid said.
But he also said while one fields in the slips, one is bound to drop a few catches. "Fewer you drop, the better you are." Dravid has taken a record 210 catches, mostly in the slip cordon, in 164 Tests.
