WALL TURNS 45, WISHES AND LOVE POUR IN
Rahul Dravid, the name explains it all. Popularly known as ‘The Wall Of Indian Cricket’ or ‘Mr. Dependable’ Rahul Dravid has always been a team player and perhaps the best team player India has ever had. If you would have asked him to walk on pieces of glass barefoot for his team, he wouldn’t have said no.
Even now when he could have chosen to be a commentator or even the coach of the Indian team and make a lot of money, he chose to groom young talents instead. He is the most selfless man in the cricket fraternity and a national treasure by all means.
THE BEST TEAM MAN EVER
Rahul Dravid is one the greatest players to have played for India and Indian cricket has been fortunate to host such a master who any day had a better batting technique and focus than any other cricketer. Rahul Dravid ended his career with 13288 test runs with 36 test centuries and 10889 runs in One Day Internationals.
THE BEST GENTLEMAN TO HAVE PLAYED THE GAME
From keeping the wickets to opening for India in test cricket, he has never shied away from doing anything for his team. This is why he is regarded as being one of the most selfless gentlemen to have played the game. He has personified cricket as being a ‘Gentlemen’s Game’ like no other cricketer.
MADE FRIENDS AND NOT JUST RUNS
His modesty and simplicity have always won hearts and he is a cricketer who has no haters. Rahul Dravid is adored not just in India but the cricket fraternity all around the world loves him and respects him so much. He has not just made heaps of runs but a lot of friends as well and paramount respect.
