Dravid

Beware, this post is a bit of a ramble. Not sure where it's headed.

So, 16th September 2011 will be remembered as the day Rahul Dravid, one of India's best batsmen, bowed out of the limited overs version(s) of the game. Paeans were written before and after the 5th ODI versus England at Cardiff. Unfortunately, the Indian team couldn't seal a victory capping off an extremely tough and a winless tour. Dravid, along with Virat Kohli, managed to get an excellent partnership going and their efforts helped the team go past the 300+ run mark. Captain MS Dhoni also scored a quick knock but England has had the upper hand throughout this tour and emerged victors in a rain-marred game.


Anyway, I wanted to blog about Dravid. Hopefully soon. For today, presenting just the image above. There never will be another one like you, Rahul Dravid. Thank you for the wonderful memories.


PS: Please excuse any typos and weird sentences. I'm way too sleepy. 'Night!

You know for a long time I believed I was his first fan, right from the time I saw him returning from Lords. My friends used to gift me life-sized posters of Dravid on my b'day! Your post just made me reminisce my fangirl days..
