Dravid has been one of India’s greatest match winners who created an ideal position in a team where it had some extremely talented cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar. 

Dravid is a right-handed batsman and basically a Sachin from the ’90s. He did so much for cricket not just in terms of cricket but also as a captain of the team.

Rahul Dravid has always been a selfless Cricketer, meaning he could do anything as far as it makes his team win like he could do innings if someone was not in form or injured, could do wicketkeeping if the situation demanded and that is why is he is the most respected cricketer in the history of games.

Someone who is being loved by all for his attitude, his skills, discipline, the toughness of spirit, and last but not least his outstanding performances internationally. Dravid never let the team spirit go down in tough situations.

Rahul Dravid has always been a perfect example of a successful person if one has the ultimate desire to achieve anything. Despite his innumerable batting achievements, the 47-year old cricketer is known for his commitment towards his team, which is commendable.
