Rahul Dravid - The Wall
The 29 year old pacer who got Rahul Dravid out in the second innings with a beauty of an in-swinger said that RD is one of the toughest batsman to bowl to.This is his first series in India and said that it is really tough bowling here though he is enjoying playing in India.

He commented that
It's pretty hard bowling in these conditions... the tracks are low and slow.Against batsmen like Dravid ,Tendulkar and Laxman who know these conditions so well, it's very tough.
His comment on RD was
He's very good up front, very solid... it's hard to get him out.

We wish the West Indies team and F.Edwards the very best for the second test that starts tomorrow.

Second test against West Indies to start tomorrow and RD just 140 runs away from 13000 test runs

Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar shares a smile.
On the third day of the just concluded 1st Test against West Indies, Sachin Tendulkar came became the first cricketer in Test History to reach 15000 runs.It was Rahul Dravid and Sachin batting on the opposite ends.Sachin after the day's play said on a interview that

I’m not sure what to say about getting to 15,000 runs (in Test cricket)... Feels nice for sure... My first thought was that Rahul (Dravid) had also been the non-striker when I’d got the 10,000th-run,
Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid
Sachin made his 10000th run also with Dravid at the other end that was back in 2005 at the Eden Gardens.Meanwhile Dravid recalled what he said to Sachin on that day at Eden.
 Six years ago, Sachin had laughed when I’d said he should go for 15,000 Test runs... Today, I asked him to go for 20,000! He laughed yet again and I’d to tell him not to do so..
Anyway we wish Sachin Tendulkar all the best and also wish our RD who is nearing 13000 test runs. :)

Dravid at the event also commented that he doesn't want to be a role-model and that is Cricket has been lucky sport in India,He said that

Cricket is just something that I am good at, just like various people are good at various things. What's lucky is that cricket gets enormous publicity.To be honest, what Abhinav and others like him have achieved has generated a lot more interest in people about other sports. There's no point in comparing cricket to other sports. It's just that cricket has been lucky,
