Rahul Dravid is known as The Wall, the man who can bat for hours in test cricket, the man who can score second-fastest ODI fifty for India, the man who can hit hat-trick sixes in a T20I & what not?
There was always someone or the other who played an inch better than and took the limelight away from him, but those things never became obstacles as he always played for his team.
He was an accomplished international player, still, he went and played for his club & college just because they asked him which shows ‘NEVER Forget your ROOTS’.
Many called him a slow batsman but his playing style has often bailed the Indian team out of trouble which shows ‘Stick to your STRENGTHS’.
Some are born to greatness. But Rahul Dravid acquired it. In Adelaide during a match in 2003, he batted India to their first win in Australia over 20 years by scoring 305 runs in the two innings, occupying the crease for as long as 835 minutes. “Dravid batted like a GOD” were the exact words said by the skipper Sourav Ganguly.
