Farewell Rahul Dravid

I feel very privileged that I was able both to watch and photograph Rahul Dravid playing cricket.

1,3,5  England v India 4th Test Day 4, The Kia Oval, 20 August 2011. With Virender Sehwag in 5.

2 England v India 5th ODI, Lord’s, 11 September 2011. Jimmy Anderson also shown.

4 Kent v India T20 tour match, Canterbury, 26 August 2011

For more photographs of Rahul from last summer, please type Dravid into the search facility in the right hand column.

  1. Played for Kent a single season in County Cricket, if I recall rightly.

  2. A thorough gentleman on and off the field of cricket, he deserves the gratitude of the nation and its people for contribution to the psyche of the nation. It will be well nigh impossible to replace him. His patience was the hallmark of his cricket and it helped him overcome the momentary loss of form which is a hazard faced by any sportsman. The youngsters of today may well take a leaf out of his book and less impatient in their behaviour on and off the field. Hard work was the bye word of this cricketer and the hours he has spent in net practice for fielding as well as batting is phenomenal. In times of need he has kept wickets for the team as well as turned his arm over. Such dedication is abnormal in any field and should be copied by all. I hope he thinks about an academy for Test Cricketers. This is the need of the hour for the development of our Test squad. Budding cricketers should be enrolled by the BCCI with all expenses paid by the BCCI. Talented youngsters will benefit from this grounding and maybe in the near future, a new set of cricketers will blossom from this academy and venture all over the world like true gladiators.
