Rahul Dravid is known as The Wall and is also well reputed to have a cool head. So when he loses his temper, it is something out of the ordinary.
Such an incident happened in the Mumbai Test vs England in 2006. India were 75/3, chasing 313 to win and Andrew Flintoff removed Dravid. India imploded and fell apart for just 100.
Well, India had lost and were forced to draw a series they could have won. The skipper was not happy and in the dressing room he completely let out his frustrations. What did he do? The man grabbed a chair and threw it across the room.
Yes, you read that right. The man showed a temper, The Wall was human. He was not angry that they had lost. What made him act out was that they had lost without a fight.
He does regret that action and admits he should not have done that.
Well it was a one off incident and for most of Dravid’s career, before and after that incident, has gone without him throwing a tantrum.
