GOOD SPORTS: Farewell to India's Great “Wall”

GOOD SPORTS: Farewell to India's Great “Wall” Rahul Dravid, who announced his retirement from international cricket last month, will be remembered for a patient batting style that earned him the nickname “The Wall” and for the prodigious talent that saw him score 13,288 runs in 164 Tests, second only to Sachin Tendulkar.

“I played with legends—I was fortunate to play in a pretty successful era in Indian cricket,” said Dravid, 39, who will continue to play in the IPL for the Rajasthan Royals.

He didn’t just play with legends. He became one himself and will be remembered as one of India’s finest batsmen ever.
