Stop picking on Rahul Dravid please …

14 Dec

I don’t get it . Why is the media hounding Rahul “The Wall” Dravid all the time? Sure.. he is having some major problems in scoring .So what ?

He is the same guy who was the toast of the media when he won matched for India in both forms of the game. In fact , he is the most successful player in Indian cricket history for playing test matches abroad. scores of budding cricket players have watched an learnt from him – stability,concentration and technique. He is not called “The Wall” for nothing.

R.Dravid is not the lord of offside like Saurav , nor is he swashbuckling player like Viru, a brilliant genius like tendulkar or the “sweet timer” of the ball like Laxman. But none of the mentioned players has the power of concentration, technique and stability like Dravid has. period. He was the guy who on numerous occasions held a partnership together from the other. He kept the ball running and scores ticking . He did it in his own way. He enjoyed the game for how he played. He done all that he can for his team. So , it would be really nice if the media left him alone. He is going through a lean patch . if so .. then so be it.  Instead of predicting or calling for his retirement . Let him leave when he wants at his own pace. It is so easy for us to sit on the fences and criticise him on how he plays . Let us not do that anymore..

Let him play his game .

    i completely agree with the person who wrote this article. Does the media just knows not to keep irritating the people who might be having some personal problems

    good point .. the media should be responsible as the fourth estate in demarcating when and where to cross the line.
    Rahul Dravid is a symbol of immense cricketing talent and concentration.. we should give him the time come back his way or log out of cricket when he chooses to and not because the media hounds him out.

    Dravid should not be dropped from Test team since he is going on with bad patch and will recover and do well in test shortly as we saw his innings in 2nd test

    He did a great job, dint he ?

    thats why i said, he is the kind of guy who you just cant/should never ignore..

    he is at the flag end of his career . allow him to go with a bang. he should play as if he has nothing to lose .

    I totally agree with the writer, he is one of the best player India ever head. I guess media like garam masala and always talk about good players who are going thru tough times. where sports star icons are endrosing more money, what do u expect from some looser players like, viru, pathan, dhoni and so forth. Tell sport stars dnt do the F###### commercial and concenterate on circket.

    Dravid was best, still best and will be, he is 1 cool guy in whole Indian sports world.
