Why not a separate poll?? We might not have a discussion to tag along with a poll always…else we could opt for a ‘poll’ coupled with an option to justify your answer (marked in the poll)..how would that be??

You have to read John Wright’s Indian Summers to fully understand the sacrifice of Dravid for the team.

In the book John Wright explains the happenings in the dressing room, that the public really doesn’t see.  He tells of Dravid’s reluctance in keeping wickets at Ganguly’s idea.  he only kept wickets at school levels….and spent many hours with the physio, to become a keeper-batsman….

thanks for the info Poshin. Dravid’s reluctance to keep wickets did do rounds as rumours..now got to know that he really didnt want to.

But he did quite well, and that did help the team..! There are so many other sacrifices that people forget when he’s in the downside of his career! I can still see him play for India with the same passion, commitment and sacrifice, longer than Sachin Tendulkar given that he is recognized as a quality batsman in the team.. not someone who is dumped on what they call ‘easier tours’..! The man deserves his place in the side, and nobody can question that!

The person who seems to top Wright’s assessment is of course Dravid, who in Wright’s eyes seems to be a ruthless, steely-eyed, cold competitor who is not bothered by trivial emotions and can ‘step back and put things in perspective’........
