'Mr. Dependable' I think is the title surely bestowed by a girl. But the fact that impresses me the most is the illustrious 16-year international career was without a blemish.
Rahul Dravid never began his innings with a bang but has always been sedate with his methods, which is second to none - a prescription which has sedated the Indian nerves too whenever Mr. Rahul Dravid has occupied the crease.
Dravid is not the man whom you would associate charisma with. In a country teeming with talented hard hitters - Rahul brought an era of a cricket which was orthodox, classy and effective - and at the same time in synchronization with the incumbent cricketing standards, which speaks volumes about the man.
Who cares about 'charisma'- Rahul has a dictionary of his own. The accolade is only a reflection of a man who had the spine to stand tall and took India to respectability more than occasionally. Take a bow master...there is much more to come!!
