Jaipur: Rajasthan Royals batsman Brad Hodge praised his captain Rahul Dravid for his skills to motivate the players as his side scored their second consecutive win in the IPL.
"He (Dravid) has been very good and motivating his players and also the dressing room atmosphere is very cordial," said Hodge who was adjudged man-of-the-match for his brisk 48 which helped RR beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 22 runs.
He said that his side had a plan to tackle the strong batting line-up of KKR and it had worked well.
"We had planned to cope with their strong batting line up by introducing spin and medium pace and that helped us to a comfortable victory," he said.
"It wasn't that the visitors could not adjust to the pace of the wicket but we bowled and batted well according to the nature of the wicket," he added.
