From teammates to oppositions, from friends to the very old foe, everyone has acknowledge Dravid as the ultimate cricketer, the unchallenged team-man, the man who did everything with grace, panache, dignity, decency and a sense of correctness that is too rare in this dog-eat-dog world. Rahul Dravid has definitely left cricket a richer, better place. Cricket will be poorer without him, but cricket will also consider itself fortunate that a giant graced the sport with such aplomb and for such a long time. So long, Rahul! And thank you for the memories. Courtesy-Deccan heard page 16, Sunday March 11, 2011-R Kaushik.
I don't think I am gonna see such bravery, determination, dedication, enthusiasm, passion, commitment, and respect on the cricket field anymore. Arguably the last Gentleman of Cricket. We will miss Cricket on the field hereafter Rahul Dravid. Thanks you for entertaining and teaching us many lessons. And you will be our best example for commitment and behavior.
