Sydney: With India heading towards their sixth consecutive overseas Test defeat, veteran batsman Rahul Dravid on Thursday said his team has quality batsmen but they need some inspiration to fightback and save the second Test.
"The key for us is to keep them on the field for a long period of time. If we can keep their bowlers and fielders on the field for more than 100 overs. Then we can put them under pressure and some of their bowlers wilt", said Dravid after the third day's play during which Australia declared for 659 for 4 in the first innings before reducing India to 114 for two in their second essay.
"Sadly in the three innings we have played so far, we haven't been able to do that. They kept up on the field for a long time today. We need to try and do that.
