Rahul Dravid - The Wall of Indian Cricket

Scoring 43 runs in the second innings of the last test against South Africa Rahul Dravid the great wall of Indian Cricket had completed his 12000th run and has become the third highest Run getter in the history of Test Cricket.With the little master being the first and Ricky Ponting in second position.I was sad to see that everyone was praising Sachin for his 50th century and few cared to notice Dravid crossing the 12000 milestone.Sure 50 centuries is a great landmark in test cricket,but 12000runs is to a great landmark.He beat Brian Lara yesterday who is just behind him in the table.Now most of you must be wondering why i am writing this artice,I am an RD fan and was really worried to see that Dravid didn't get the appreciation he deserves.It's always the same,people just fail to notice the things he did for team India,they are rather busy praising Sachin for his centuries and Dhoni for his captaincy.I am just writing this to remind everyone the fact that the wall deserves a lot more.Respect this great player as you respect Sachin or Ganguly or anyone else.
