Rahul Dravid is a cricketer who defined the true meaning of gentlemen’s game. Not only with his batting but also with his decision-making skills he has helped the Indian team achieve great heights. However, the only black spot in his professional career has to be the controversial Multan declaration.
The right-hander decided to call off the innings at the most inopportune time and left Sachin Tendulkar stranded on the score of 194. As expected the Mumbaikar was surprised by his captain’s choice. At first, he reacted furiously to the other members of the dressing room including Dravid. Even in his autobiography, he has expressed the incident as an unfortunate one. Still, Sachin has always come up with positive replies to the questions related to the matter and has repeatedly termed Dravid as his good friend.
As far as Rahul is concerned it is one of the most baffling decisions taken by him as the coach and the senior members didn’t agree with him. Some die-hard Sachin fans believe that Rahul purposefully denied Tendulkar’s double century. The reason being the equal number of 200s in their Test career at the time. So if the Little Master could have completed the innings he would have surpassed his teammate. Who knows the Wall might have strained on his personal record for one split second?
When India won the 2011 World Cup the two players who led the team in the final moments of their glory are Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni. Especially nobody can forget the joyful hug between the two of them after the winning hit. Such has been their friendship that both of them never fail to praise each other on any stage.
However, the friendship didn’t start on a good note as Yuvraj was not on good terms with Dhoni in the early days of his career. The Punjab cricketer used to taunt Dhoni on the basis of his ethnicity. He used to call him a Bihari and downplay his achievements after his each match-winning performances for the country.
At first, the former Indan skipper ignored the comments but it continued for a long time. That’s when he retorted and asked Yuvraj the real reason behind his annoying actions. Hearing this the southpaw understood his mistake and started laughing. Since then they became close friends and together they have led the team to various memorable victories.
