Rahul Dravid, former Indian skipper and one of the finest batsmen to have ever played for India, is celebrating his 47th birthday today. Rahul Dravid is one of the few cricketers who went on to prove their mettle in all the three formats of the game in both overseas and home games.
Known for his solid technique, Rahul Dravis is fondly called as ‘The Wall’ of Indian cricket team by his fans. He has had a glorious career, where he gave us many memorable moments to cherish for life. Rahul Dravid was one of the key players in both Tests and ODIs, where he amassed over 24000 international runs.
Due to his orthodox batting style, he received a lot of criticism and was even dropped from the ODI side early in his career, but Rahul Dravid didn’t give up and went on to become one of the most reliable cricketers ever.
Even today, while most of the former Indian cricketers are busy in their own lives. Rahul Dravid is toiling hard to prepare the younger generation for the game.
As ‘the Wall’ is celebrating his birthday today, wishes and tributes for the legendary cricketer are pouring in from all parts of the globe for the legendary batsman.
