I had the privilege of witnessing his very debut Ranji Trophy outing. I was in awe of him then and am now too. I am one of his foremost fans. He is class apart out of the lot, a stickler for perfection beyond comparison and gentleman to the core. He had no airs of being a superstar of his stature, truly unbelievable for a person who has scored more than 28,000 runs in International cricket. In him , we found the epitome of thorough gentleman in a game called cricket which is so different today. Men come and go, but the Wall is the real Wall that he is and was. If at all someone asks me to name the best cricketer ever remembered for his contribution and posterity, Rahul Dravid stands first and the best in real terms. Hats off Rahul Dravid. You are a Gem. May your finesse and brilliance extend to other horizons too.Great luck sir.
We miss you on the cricketing field, but not off it…..!!!
