Rahul Dravid – a legend in Test Cricket

July 25, 2011

Rahul Dravid is a fantastic cricketer, and a role model for younger generation – focused, hardworking and humble.

Dravid recently became the 2nd highest scorer in Test Cricket (Sachin Tendulkar is the leading scorer). His contribution to Indian cricket is enormous and his nickname, “The Wall”, is a testimony to his concentration, skill and will that has given India tremendous success in Test cricket. 

Dravid isn’t worshiped in India like Tendulkar. He has played his cricket under Tendulkar’s shadow. This isn’t because his skill, will or contribution to Indian success is second to anyone. Its just that he lives in the same era as another great cricketer – Tendulkar.

Indian test cricket will never be the same when Dravid retires.
