Rahul Dravid, born on January 11, 1973, is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. As The Wall turns 42 today, Let's see some iconic quotes on him.
Brett Lee: If you can’t get along with Dravid, you’re struggling in life.
Chris Gayle: Dravid Could play attacking cricket like me but i could never play like him
Brian Lara : If I have to put anyone to bat for my life, it’ll be Kallis or Dravid.
Muralitharan: Rahul is always been in the shadow of Sachin. If you take his record it’s as good as Sachin's but you cannot compare both as they are different kind of players. Rahul is a complete cricketer.
Brad Hogg: Nothing can beat experience
Matthew Hayden: All this going around is not aggression. If you want to see aggression on cricket field, look into Rahul Dravid’s eyes”
Sachin Tendulkar: He (Dravid) is a perfect role model for youngsters. He has set a great example for all of us to follow. We are all trying to follow that path,”
Ian Chappell: Team in trouble? Whom do you turn to? Rahul Dravid!
Steve Waugh advising his bowlers on Rahul Dravid: “Try to take his wicket in the first 15 minutes, if you can’t then only try to take the remaining wickets.”
Navjot Singh Sidhu: Rahul Dravid is a player who would walk on broken glass if his team asks him to”
Shoaib Akhtar: Even though Sachin is great, I have always found Rahul more solid and hard to get out. He has a solid defense and plays less shots than others. When a batsman plays less shots then it is tough to get him as he makes less mistakes.
A Fan: If Sachin is the Superman of Indian cricket universe, Rahul dravid is The Dark Knight
