Happy Birthday Rahul Dravid.
Rahul Dravid, a former Indian captain and director of cricket operations at the National Cricket Academy, is turning 47. Dravid has always been known for his patience, resilience and, above all, class
Dravid decided to look after and shape the next generation of Indian cricket after his retirement
During a significant portion of his 16-year test career, Dravid was the bulwark. He was in the star-studded Indian batting team, which included Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.
Humility was its highest quality. He didn’t want to be known as the best. “Even if my children do not remember that I have run over 10,000 runs, they would remember that I played with Sachin Tendulkar” – Rahul Dravid.
Rahul was termed as “The wall” for his defence and stance.
The Wall, was a classic batsman. He based his game on an almost impregnable defense and a stance. He was a puristic pleasure, even if his teammates often left their best efforts behind.
Rahul Dravid has been the keeper of Indian cricket since the day he put the Indian cap on. Years after his retirement, he still does and takes the next generation of Indian cricket under his wing.
Dravid could easily have become the senior coach of India. To be appreciated, he decided to coach and shape the next generation of Indian cricket. The Indian team now is already yielding dividends.
Dravid started working as a coach for the Indian A and U-19 teams in 2015. He has since given direction to many budding cricketers.
Mayank Agarwal, Prithvi Shah and Hanuma Vihari tested cricket like duck on water. The all-rounder Vijay Shankar played his world championship, while Shubhman Gill joined the ODI team in New Zealand.
K L Rahul is a beneficiary of Rahul dravid’s mentor ship.
He tenured as captain and mentor of the IPL team Rajasthan Royals. Dravid brought young talents like Unmukt Chand, Karun Nair, Harmeet Singh and Sanju Samson to the forefront.
Lokesh Rahul is another beneficiary of Dravid’s in-depth understanding of the game. He accumulated over 164 tests and 344 ODIs – and especially drama. The 26-year-old Rahul was in a crisis after a loss of shape. A brief interruption followed him. Due to inappropriate comments that happened on a television chat show.
