Rajasthan Royals captain Rahul Dravid said that tough situations test the character of top teams and he expects that his boys would overcome the current crisis that has rocked the cricket world after S Sreesanth and two other players were arrested for their alleged role in the spot-fixing scandal.
"I think adversities helps us to galvanize a side. We have come close as a group and hope to perform well," the 40-year-old former India captain said during the toss of his team's IPL match against Hyderabad Sunrisers.
Asked about how tough it has been, he made no bones in accepting the fact.
"It has been really tough not only for me but for everyone who follows the game of cricket," Dravid said.
