Win a perfect warm-up: Dravid

Glasgow:

Indian skipper Rahul Dravid has said that the thumping win against Scotland was a perfect warm-up for the team for the bigger battle against England.

"We are shifting from the Test mode to the one-day mode so we need to adjust few things. It was the first one-day game after the Test series and I am glad that everything fell in place," Dravid said after India beat Scotland by seven wickets on Thursday.

Dravid said he was happy with the performance of Munaf Patel and Ajit Agrakar since they were playing after a long time.

"Munaf is coming back in the team after some time and he bowled well today. Both Munaf and Ajit did a good job. It was a professional performance from the team," he said.

Man of the match Gautam Gambhir said that it was a satisfying performance considering the cold conditions.

"It is pretty chilly here. We are not used to these conditions. England had a good weather. So it was important to get used to in the middle. They bowled well in good areas," he said.

"It is important that whenever you get an opportunity, you give your best," he said.

Losing skipper Ryan Watson said that he was happy with the performance of the team but there were lessons to be learnt from top side like India.

"It was a decent total. We fought hard. We bowled well but their top order acquired singles and we can learn from these things," he said.
