CLT20: Winning and succeeding is not important if you play foul, says Rahul Dravid

Rahul Dravid's former Rajasthan Royals and India team-mate S Sreesanth and Ankeet Chavan were recently handed life bans by the BCCI for involvement in spot-fixing, a few months after spending time in jail. Dravid also praised Pravin Tambe for his hardwork in the 'free' time after IPL which is reaping him rewards.

Jaipur: Former captain Rahul Dravid says the spirit of the game has become more "relevant and important" in the wake of the IPL spot-fixing scandal that plunged Indian cricket into a credibility crisis.

One of the most disciplined statesmen of modern-day cricket, Dravid said, "In times like these when the game is facing big challenges and some of the players get involved (corruption) the spirit of the game becomes more relevant and important.

"It is important that you play within rules and in spirit of the game. Selections should be consequence of what you are doing but not the goal. Winning and succeeding is not important if you play foul."
