There are some strong rumours that RD might be playing at the inaugural Bangladesh Premier league also known as the BPL.The official facebook page of the Bangladesh Premier league says that Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman have showed interest to take part in the league and will be put in an auction to happen on January 19th.This might happen as Dravid would be free after the test series against Australia to take part in this tournament.This would be a great boost to the league as it doesn't have big names to it's credit.This would be a great warm up for Dravid before the IPL season as well.

Rahul Dravid the center of attention.
I wish this happens, all the best RD.We wish all the best to the BPL and hope this would bring new life to Bangladesh Cricket.

Update: The BCCI has restricted it's players from taking part in the Bangladesh Premier League.This means that Rahul Dravid or no other Indian player can be part of the BPL.

The Gambhir attitude !

Well i was watching a few cricket videos on youtube when i noticed there were a lot of sledging videos which Gautham Gambhir was part of.Not that i am complaining, I just love his attitude.This was the attitude we had missed when Dada(Ganguly) retired.

Gautham Gambhir Sledge with Austrailia (He went on to make a double then)

Gambhir vs Shahid Afridi

Gautham Gambhir vs Kamran Akmal

Gauthi vs Andre Nel.

Well you gotta love his attitude and guts.

'Why Dravid is my favourite cricketer' - an Article

Rahul Dravid
An article written by K77Sujith at gem of an article if you admire Rahul Sharad Dravid.

"Coming from India, I am sure it surprises many that I haven’t mentioned my favourite cricketer as Sachin Tendulkar. Make no mistake, I am a huge fan of the Little Master and I hope there would never come a time when he decides to call it quits. However, there is one man who has always been in the shadows of Saurav Ganguly and Tendulkar, one who has quietly and religiously gone about his business – ‘The Wall’ Rahul Dravid. Despite being recognized as one of the most mentally strong cricketers the game has ever seen, he has always preferred to stay away from the spotlight and let his performances do the talking. Dravid, along with Ganguly, burst onto the scene with his brilliant batting efforts in a Test match at Lord’s against England in 1996. He exhibits brilliant batting technique, be it defence or offence and is supremely sincere and dedicated to his craft. Dravid has constantly improved his technique over the years and has adapted to the different modes of the game. Like the Little Master, Dravid is a highly disciplined cricketer who has seldom been embroiled in controversy. Dravid is a hard-as-nails gentleman who commands respect on the field, not just from his team-mates but from the opposition as well. Ask Allan Donald! "

Bowled 13 times over the past 12months ! What went wrong ?

Posted by Athul Jayachandran | Labels: , | Posted On Thursday, January 05, 2012 at 11:38 PM

We all know he is a great player, but it's really sad to see RD getting out to similar bowl a lot of times in the past year and in the ongoing series.If we take the stats, Dravid has been bowled 11 times in 2011 and 4 times in this ongoing series, which includes one off a No-ball.We will show you some videos where he has got out similar manner

Ben Hilfenhaus in the Sydney test.
James Pattison in Boxing day test.
 Peter Siddle in Boxing Day test
 Fiedel Edwards in West Indies tour of India 2011

Well i compiled these videos not to show his weakness, but in hope that RD can correct his technique soon.I feel he should play this ball on his back foot rather than going on a front foot.

We all know he is going through a tough phase since Australia series with some dropped catches and below average scores.Instead of shouting out he is too old for the game, let us hope, pray and support him so that he would come out strong in the next test.As you all know 'Form is Temporary, But Class is permanent'.
