When India take on England in their last final ODI at Cardiff on Friday, 16th September, our wall Rahul Dravid will be playing his last and final ODI of his career! The die-hard fans of Rahul will miss his cool presence in the limited edition of the game. Whole India will be watching his final match to honour his great service to the Indian cricket.
Today, there are many young Indians criticise Dravid about him being a liability for the Indian team, criticize his batting style in ODIs, his slow nature of scoring etc. etc. I will advise them to look his career from 15 years back to understand his method and approach on how and why Dravid became the player to score more than 10,000 runs in both form of the game. He was our main man in crisis for the Indian team and he is our man in crisis even today!.
It will be interesting to see how he would finish his last match of the career when India is again in a crisis with no wins from this England tour. He is in good form. I wish he scores a fitting century to help India achieve its first victory in England.
