Rahul Dravid
  hmmm... Just 500 words..!! I feel I can speak days and days about Rahul. Am confused on how do I express my love,passion, gratitude, my depth of concern,interest in you .. Rahul u r simply "The Man" of Indian cricket. I have been a big fan of urs ever since u made ur debut in Lord's test in the summer of '96. I was in my class 6th then and I cant remember the number of times that I have watched that innings. Felt very sad when u missed ur debut 100 but my respect to u grew sky high when I saw u nick the ball to the keeper and start walking instantly.. I knew u r going to stay for long.. I need not mention about Rahul's cricketing skills as thats known to the world now.. But what I like in U the most is ur Persona. The way u carry urself.. Ur words are very weighted, ur actions are very thoughtful both on and off the field.. Ur style is awesome.. I dont know the number of classes I have bunked to watch u play.. I have had sleepless nights when u failed and have enjoyed like hell in ur successes.. I have my own favourite list of ur best innings and the one that stands among all is the double ton and a 73* in the Adelaide test in 2003.. My god!! What form were u in at that time..The 180 at Eden Gardens, the 153* against SL in the '99 WC follow it.. I was so happy when u received the ICC cricketer of the year in its debut season.. Rahul, if there was one decision of urs that I was not convinced was u relinquishing the captaincy of the Indian team as i often feel that it led to ur ouster from the ODI team.. Rahul I have seen u a couple of times before but have never had a chance to talk to u in person.. I just hope that I am selected as one of the 50 contenders for the royal send off and it would be the day of my life if I indeed get a chance to meet u in person.. Pleeaaaassseee do vote for me... Not just another fan, Nagaraj (Bangalore) PS: Not sure if I get the chance to meet the team or not but am sure the CLT20 Trophy is of team RCB.. :-)
