Former Indian cricketers Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar have served the Indian cricket for more than 20 years together. Their contribution to Indian cricket cannot be paid back. The amount of time, sweat and runs they have given is unreal.
Dravid and Tendulkar have been friends for a long time too. They used to share many jokes in the dressing room to keep the environment light. During a Sachin’s book launch, Rahul Dravid remembered an incident when he heard the voice of Sachin for the very first time. In the process of narrating that moment, he also mimicked Sachin.
Here is the video:
During a domestic cricket match, when Ravi Shastri was in dilemma to whom to give the ball, Sachin had raised his hand and told Shastri, “Mai daalega”, meaning “I will bowl.” Shastri asked him, “Kya daalega?”, meaning. “What will you bowl?” Sachin replied, “Leg spin bhi daalega, off-spin bhi daalega,,sab daalega.” He meant, “Can bowl leg spin as well of off spin. Can bowl anything.”
This one story is a very popular one why not? It involves two of the greatest characters of Indian cricket and not just cricketers. The fact that Rahul Dravid is mimicking Sachin Tendulkar narrating this incident speaks on how close friends they are, even after retiring from all forms of the game.
