10 Beautiful Quotes By Rahul Dravid Proving His Immense Humility Despite Him Being A Cricket Legend

If there is one man on the planet that has not let all the fame and attention go to his head; it is the legendary Rahul Dravid. Despite boasting of 79-century partnership stands in Tests and over 10,000 runs in both ODIs and Tests, ‘The Wall’ has never, not once, let it show that he is anything more than a cricketer who is simply playing for his country.

Those of us, who worship this man beyond reason, don’t just love him for his feats on the field, but also for the man that he is. Cricket is called the ‘gentleman’s game’ and Dravid exemplifies that very quality in the sport.  

Quite recently, Dravid’s immense humility was displayed to the world yet again, when he congratulated the Nepal Under-19 Cricket team for upsetting the Indian side in the Asia Cup in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday. 

Dravid, who is coaching the Indian Under-19 Cricket team, walked up to his Nepalese counterpart Binod Kumar and congratulated him for the victory, which further pumped the atmosphere in the already jubilant dressing room of Nepal. 

“Dravid has been very humble. He congratulated us. He said we deserved this win as much as anybody else. He also said we played better than anybody else in the tournament. We are happy he acknowledges our effort. We are thrilled to have his support with us.” Das was quoted as saying by espncricinfo.
