"I think it is a disappointing performance all round with the ball first, in the field as well and with the bat. The good thing I guess is that we have got hopefully four games and we get to try and correct this," Dravid said after India folded for 215 chasing 334 in the second match today.
     
Dravid said the execution was poor on the field today but his boys are motivated and would look to grab this great opportunity to impress the selectors with a better performance in the next games.
     
"All these guys are youngsters and they are all trying to really impress the selectors and make a mark for themselves. I am sure they will be keen in each and every game that they play," he said.
     
"It is a great opportunity. It is a great opportunity to learn. It is a great opportunity to impress and so they do not feel that the issue is with motivation. That is not the problem. The problem today is just the execution, which was poor with the ball and bat," he said.
     
India-A players didn't play spin well in the Test series and in this game and Dravid said his boys can play spinners a lot better but they failed to execute their plans today.
     
"It is an area that we need to definitely consider. You will remember the way Moin Ali and others bowled in Test match. Here, we were chasing a big total. The leg-spinner Adam Zampa is always going to take chances for wicket. When you are chasing 334 you have to take a lot of risks," he said.
     
"I think we can definitely play spinners lot better than we have. Honestly, they played spin better than we have in the Test matches and even in this one-day game today. Something we speak about and spoken about and something we practised as well. Just a question of being able to execute it in the game," he said.
