    Rahul Dravid bid adieu to Test match (already to one day) so we gonna miss Dravid in Indian team (he is playing for 20-20). As a player of the "Gentleman's Game" he proved himself as a real Gentleman throughout his career....He gave us many great moments to cherish about our country..as a real allrounder (batsman,bowler,wicketkeeper..to the top of that he also led the team as Captain in few matches)
    He holds the world record for most number of catches in Test match...

    We wish our Hero to be part our team india in future too
    MISS YOU RAHUL DRAVID but at the same time hats off to you :hatsoff:hatsoff:hatsoff

    Will miss seeing him around... What a team player - was ready to go in at any place - right from opening the innings to going in at No:6! Do whatever the team demands - wicket-keeping, captaining! Play long hours of test cricket to draw a match! Amazing sportsman, who showed that the team and playing for the country is what it comes down to!

    Will miss seeing you in whites, Dravid :-(

    An incredibly gifted player! Can't say what I admire most...his tenacity and doggedness at the crease or his simple and non-flashy life off the field. Sure will miss him...is the master blaster going to follow suit soon? Remains to be seen...sigh.

    Ah no! I want the master blaster to remain longer (in fact wanted dravid to remain longer too), and would have been more than happy to see the wristy Hyderabadi go soon (though he has been a match-winner), he is not getting better with age!

    I am one of those fan who cherished dravid killing the opponents with his own WALL tactics. He is one of the finest and chiseled gentleman ever seen in the cricketing arena. Just listen to those speeches(farewell and speech in australia). He maintained professionalism throughout his career. What i liked in his farewell speech was

    "My approach to cricket has been reasonably simple: it was about giving everything to the team, it was about playing with dignity, and it was about upholding the spirit of the game. I hope I have done some of that. I have failed at times, but I have never stopped trying. It is why I leave with sadness but also with pride."


    We Miss u jammy and wall. I am still feeling the uneasiness at work ever since i watched the farewell speech on new channel.. Hope i recover soon..
