Rahul Dravid turns 44: Guess who is leading the way in wishing ‘The Wall’ happy birthday
Considered one of the greatest Test batsmen to ever play the game, former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid turned 44 today.
Wishes poured in from all over the world for ‘The Wall’ who for most of the part of last decade carried the Indian batting on his shoulder along with his teammates Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly.
Leading the charge to wish Dravid on his birthday was his former team mate Virender Sehwag who has now become a sort of ‘Twitter celebrity’.
Sehwag, who was considered very close to Dravid in his playing days, also tweeted out a picture of him with former India captain and said, “He played in the V. But was the biggest C. Commitment, Class, Consistency, Care. Proud to have played together. Happy Birthday #RahulDravid.”
Other Indian cricketers including incumbent captain Virat Kohli also wished Dravid on his special day.
Dravid played 164 Test matches, 344 ODI cricket and one T20 and bid adieu to International cricket in 2012. He scored 13,288 runs at the average of 52.31 in Tests while his aggregate in ODIs stands at 10,889 with the average of 39.16.
He is currently coaching the India’s Under-19 and A team.
