M.S. Dhoni stressed that the spot vacated by Rahul Dravid, is a huge void to fill. “Over 13,000 runs in Tests, over 10,000 in ODIs, I mean, what more can you expect from a cricketer who played for 16 years ? There cannot be another Rahul Dravid. He did everything he was asked — opening, wicket-keeping — and he will be missed in the dressing room,” the Indian captain said here on Saturday.
Dhoni hoped that some youngster will step forward but cautioned against comparisions with Dravid. “Let us not put any pressure on any youngster, who might step in,” the skipper added.
Meanwhile, Akram Khan, who resigned from his position of chairman of selectors following Tamim Iqbal's exit at the insistence of the Bangladesh Cricket Board president, has now declared that he will get back to the committee.
