Dravid, the fans' choice
There seems to be a lot of roar among fans about Dravid. In the fan poll which Natasha@RCB conducted about who the fans' best player was, 'The Wall' came out clearly on top. So I thought, why not create an info-graphic (since I love those charts, look here, and here) about why the fans love RD so much. And there's more. This info-graphic would be presented to the man himself.
I am personally a huge fan of Dravid as well. I remember going to the India vs Australia game at the Wankhede Stadium (Oct 17, 2007). Dravid was not playing that match (dropped due to being out of form, LOL @ selectors, Dravid is never out of form), but he was in the squad. Australia batted first, and during the change of innings, both the teams came out to practice in the outfield as they usually do. For India, MSD was batting near the fine leg boundary, whereas none other than Rahul Dravid was batting on the third man boundary. I was sitting in the North Stand, so could clearly see both. Even while playing on thick grass, Dravid (facing RP I think) timed each and every cover drive to perfection. What's more, most of them seemed to go where Dhoni was batting on the other side. Meanwhile, MSD kept missing a lot of short balls from Zaheer. Moral: Asking Zaheer to bowl short on lush grass is not a good idea Mahi!
Before I get carried away, lets come to the point. Now, in order to make the info-graphic, I want all the fans who read this to tell me three characteristics of RD which they love. The comments section is all yours. Get carried away in Dravid-mania and come up with three things you love/like/adore/admire about him, his cricket and everything else Dravid. I would take care of the rest. For me, the three would be:
1. Price on his wicket
3. Love for the game
Don't restrict yourself to these three, come up with your own.
