Peter O Toole from a film
Peter O' Toole is an 80year old Academy award nominated actor from Ireland, He was once quoted saying about Rahul Dravid,

Everyone praises Sachin Tendulkar. He may be a genius in his own right but in my book, Rahul Dravid is the artist. Dravid’s defence tactics, his strokes, his cuts, his grace are truly amazing. I’d like to meet the chap sometime and take my hat off to him.
