India U-19 coach Rahul Dravid and former Indian skipper has opened up on various topics in a recent conversation. Dravid during an interview with ESPNCricinfo he picked his former India team-mate Sachin Tendulkar for the task of batting for his life, given his quality and class.
Dravid also opened up on two bowlers which he would have liked to face during his career. Dravid made 13288 runs in his 16-year old long career.
“Michael Holding and Jeff Thompson. Maybe for a few deliveries, not for too many and definitely not without a helmet,” Dravid said.
When asked what was the funniest sledge he faced on the pitch, the former Indian captain picked the one by the Australian players.
“When I walked in at Kolkata, I was reminded that I’d been batting at No. 3 in the first Test, and by the time we reached the third innings in Kolkata, I was No. 6,” he recounted. “So I was told that by the end of the series I’d be No. 12, which I thought was really funny.”
Dravid also revealed that he would love to share a partnership with Sunil Gavaskar.
