New Delhi: Rajasthan Royals skipper Rahul Dravid says dealing with the turmoil caused by the spot-fixing scandal, which has left his team's reputation in tatters, has turned out to be as tough as handling "bereavement in some ways".

"I would not lie it was a very tough phase for us. It was a blow to the team. It's something I have never experienced anything like it. It's like bereavement in some ways," Dravid told reporters after his team beat Sunrisers Hyderabad to enter the second qualifier of the IPL, here last night.

Rajasthan Royals secured a four-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in a thrilling low scoring 'Eliminator' to book their place in the second Qualifier where they will be meeting the mighty Mumbai Indians in Kolkata.
