IPL: After Charu, Mallya targets Rahul Dravid

Bangalore, May 12: After the CEO was shown the door, Mallya questions on Rahul Dravid's judgement over the team selected, distancing himself from the team think tank.

Mallya's outburst was undoubtedly in the offing given the Royal Challengers' poor progress in IPL. Mallya is now pointing fingers at the skipper for his choices and the current position of the team. “My biggest mistake was to abstain from the selection of the team. Though I watch a lot cricket whenever possible, I am no cricket expert at the end of the day," says Mallya, owner of IPL team Bangalore, Royal Chalengers.

Now, as his $120 million-investment, the Bangalore Royal Challengers (BRC), languishes at the bottom of the IPL table, Mallya must question academician Rahul Dravid. He fruther regrets on trusting Charu Sharma and Rahul Dravid for team selection.

"I had a separate list of players that I wanted. But since Dravid is such an iconic player I trusted his judgment. After seeing the final list, my friends told me it looked like a Test team," said Mallya.
