Kingston, Jamaica: "Don't drop Rahul Dravid again" - that is not just Darren Sammy's personal goal, it is part of a three-step formula that the guilt-ridden West Indies cricket captain has in mind to bounce back from the opening Test loss to India here.

West Indies lost the opening Test by 63 runs in under four days to India. During the match, Sammy dropped Dravid when the Indian had a mere six runs in his account and the West Indies had the visitors on a tight leash.
The dropped catch proved decisive as Dravid went on to strike his 32nd Test hundred with a 112-run knock that gave India the upper hand and eventually the match.
Sammy, already drawing flak for his poor personal performance, confessed to spending a sleepless night after dropping the catch and it seems it is still haunting him.
"Correct the batting and I don't drop (Rahul) Dravid again, and we shouldn't be under pressure to win the next Test," the pacer was quoted as saying by 'Trinidad Express'.
The second Test of the three-match series is scheduled from June 28 in Bridgetown, Barbados.
