One of the former right-handed batsmen and best stylish player of Indian team “Rahul Dravid”. In this post, we will know why Rahul Dravid is called “The wall of Indian Team”.
Why Rahul Dravid is called as the Wall of Indian Team
This name was just written as a headline in a newspaper by an employee to make it big news. But why he actually did it?
It was the time of India vs Pakistan Test Match 2004 where Rahul Dravid played an Inning of 270 in 12 hours.
Can you imagine for playing 12 hours!!! It was the longest Inning played by any Indian batsman in the history of Test matches.
Did you get that how much he played and not just played but he took on all the fast and powerful deliveries of Pakistan’s bowling attacks.
Shoaib Akthar himself said that – “He said that Sachin Tendulkar was great but Rahul Dravid has no holes in his defense and it was the hardest to break.”
Steve Vaugh said that – “If you want to take this guy down you have to take it in the first 15 minutes after that just try to take other wickets cause he is not going to stop.”
