Adieu, Dravid


Rahul Dravid's retirement from international and domestic first class cricket has brought the curtains down on a glorious cricketing career that extended over 16 memorable years. One of the greatest batsmen ever, Dravid did not get his due as he played in the same generation as Sachin Tendulkar.

Like his batting technique, Dravid's on-field behaviour was exemplary. He will be missed, particularly in the top order batting line up.

Zulfikhar Akram,


The greater part of Dravid's career was overshadowed by greats like Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara with their free flowing style of cricket, which people instantly fell in love with. Dravid epitomised the heart and grit within, but was rarely in the limelight. This irony will always question many of us.

Everyone is talking and writing about Dravid. Overseas players have said he was not just a great player but a fantastic person. I had the privilege of flying Dravid to various destinations during my flying days with Indian Airlines. Yes, he was always calm and a perfect gentleman. One hopes he will share his time and talent with the youth of this country.
