We fall short of words to describe Rahul Dravid, such is the greatness of the man, who unconditionally stayed as “The Wall” guarding Indian cricket. Dravid has undoubtedly been one of the phenomenal batsmen the longest format of the game has ever seen and over the years, there were several occasions where he made the difference for the side with relative ease.
Those magnificent drives that flow past his bat giving pure bliss to eyes to the aggression which was clearly visible in his eyes, there was something so special about the Wall which makes him one of those very few personalities across the country with absolutely zero haters.
But what really sets this person apart? What makes these writers go nuts whilst describing him? Why so many rate him as the greatest though there are many who are ahead in terms of numbers? Why respect and awe come in tandem when his name comes up? Here’s an example of Rahul Dravid and his personal life which will really make you understand this man’s simplicity.
