Jaipur (PTI): Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid on Tuesday said death bowling was not a worry for his side this season as not only their experienced bowlers are back, they have a good backup after signing a few more exciting players. "We were hampered by injuries to our main bowlers Shaun Tait, Kevin Kooper and Sreesanth. Moreover, Shane Watson was not available for most of the matches and that meant that at times the responsibility of bowling death overs was shouldered by rather inexperienced bowlers," Dravid, who will also coach the side, said "We had to pay price for that but this time we are better equipped. In the auctions, we went for Fidel Edwards and James Faulkner under our backup plans," Dravid said after the launch of official fan wear collection of the team. "Edwards can generate good pace like Tait and Australian youngster James Faulkner has been doing well in this version of cricket. Sreesanth too is fit and available. He has been bowling very well at the nets and practice matches. He is eager to prove himself and that is why he slogged in the nets even after the practice match. So this time we won't be facing the heat in death overs," said the skipper. Dravid hinted that Shane Watson might get to bowl in the tournament but added that the decision lies remains with the Aussie all-rounder.
