Popularly known as 'The Wall' of Indian cricket team, former Indian captain Rahul Dravid's video showing his entire cricket journey was treasured by his mother in a scrapbook.
Rahul started playing cricket at the age of 12 and later the boy from Bangalore played for under-15, under-17 and under-19 groups for his state.
Rahul’s father had always been a great cricket enthusiast and that's how the little boy Rahul developed interest in the game. He later on gave nightmares to the best bowlers of the world.
Rahul’s cricketing statistics might speak a lot of good about him, but the generous man's attitude on the field made it even bigger for him.
Most of the iconic cricketers have praised Dravid one or the other time during his entire cricket career:
Mathew Hayden said, "All this going around is not aggression. If you want to see aggression on cricket field, look into Rahul Dravid's eyes."
Sachin Tendulkar said, "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."
Bran Lara: "If I have to put anyone to bat for my life, it’ll be Kallis or Dravid."
Navjot Singh Sidhu: "Rahul Dravid is a player who would walk on broken glass if his team asks him to."
Chris Gayle: "Dravid could play attacking cricket like me but I could never play like him."
Shane Warne : "Rahul Dravid being known as 'The Wall' is pretty much spot on. 'The fortress' could also describe Rahul. Because once, Dravid was set, you needed the bowling equivalent of a dozen cannon firing all at once to blast him down"
