An intellect cricketer declares it’s time to move on . . .

One of the greatest legends of cricket, Rahul Dravid will not be seen in international games any more. He was one of the fabulous 4s who redefined Indian Cricket. India and Cricket was lucky to see a classic player like him entertaining us for the past 16 years. A perfectionist who plays every cricketing shot as defined in the dictionary of cricket. He was part of many Indian camps which made histories and he had been a significant contributor in all those games to bring home victories. An intellect cricketer who had high standards for game and played with great commitment. A true servant of Indian cricket who has taken many roles (batsmen, keeper, great slip fielder and captain for many games) and has played at all positions of the batting order. His techniques were of top class and his stroking making styles were classics. His statistics will speak of his long and memorable career. The WALL was part of many long standing innings and partnerships, most of which were classics to be cherished.

He is really an ambassador for the sport, for the Indian team and for India; Cricket will not be the same without him and there were very few chances of seeing a player like him in the future.

Cricket lovers will definitely miss his classic drives and cuts.
