The Cricketing World Pays Tribute To Its Favourite Child As Rahul Dravid Turns 46

The 11th of January marks a significant day in the history of Indian cricket. No, not because of a monumental World Cup triumph or toppling the Aussies down under, but for the birth of an exceptional talent, who went on to make unforgettable contributions to the sport.

On this very day in 1973, legendary Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid saw the face of the earth and the rest, as they say, is history. Hailed as the most generous cricketer to walk down the 22 yards, Rahul Dravid could step on broken glass for the sake of his team. His copybook cricketing technique and extraordinary levels of concentration hoisted him at the top of the mountain, in all formats of the game.

A staggering 24,000 runs in his repertoire and the numerous match-saving knocks that came from his willow, speak volumes about the character of the man.

And for you to make a clearer idea, here are some quotes on ‘The Wall’ of Indian cricket coming from the very bests of the game.
