Royals have moved on from hot Warne to cool Dravid: Shilpa Shetty

Rajasthan Royals co-owner Shilpa Shetty feels Rahul Dravid is more calm than Shane Warne as skipper.

"Rahul (Dravid) is cooler than Shane (Warne). When it comes to the game, he is very assertive and does what he thinks is best for the team. Off the field too, he is a genuinely good person," Shilpa Shetty told the Times of India.

The Bollywood star says although Warne led them to win the championship in the inaugural Indian Premier League in 2008 but the team has now shifted faith in Dravid.

"Shane has always been supportive. He taught me how to play poker. He has contributed immensely, but now that Rahul is our skipper, we believe in him completely. He makes his decisions. Under his captaincy, the team did really well last season too," she said.

The Royals' owner is a bit superstitious and believes her son Viaan is a lucky charm.

"I could get idiotic! From wearing two watches on the same hand to wearing the same sweaty jersey for a couple of matches. But now I believe my son is the lucky charm, I am superstitious," said the actress.
