"Dravid has confidence in the youngsters and there is no better thing than going and performing there," said the Mumbai Indians allrounder.

New Delhi: West Indies allrounder Kieron Pollard lavished praise on Delhi Daredevils mentor Rahul Dravid stating that he has done a "magnificent job with the youngsters throughout India".

Asked about the Daredevils team not having so much of experience, Pollard said: "In Rajasthan also there was a young team and if you look at the person working behind the scenes, Rahul Dravid has done a magnificent job with youngsters throughout India and they all are gravitating towards him.

"Even in Delhi, youngsters are performing. They went and beat Bangalore in Bangalore. He has confidence in the youngsters and there is no better thing than going and performing there."

While most of the teams have excelled chasing, Pollard terms it as more difficult compared to batting first.

"Even though you know how much to get, you still have to get those runs. Then wickets will fall and you will go on the back foot and you have to change your game. But whether you chase well or bat first, you have to bat properly. In any ground when you go, you know what is the par score."

He did agree that defending totals is difficult but bowlers need to execute what they practice.

"If you give your hundred per cent and execute your plans and lose, I would accept that other team played better cricket. But if we can't execute [our plans], then we have to look at the faults."
