'Dravid an inspiration'

“I have been a great fan of Dravid, not just the way he plays but the composure with which he bats,” Maken said, paying tribute to the man who added another feather to his cap by appearing in his 151st Test for India against West Indies in Kingston on Monday.

“He has been a role model for youngsters over the years,” Maken went on. “He is an inspiration to the younger generation, and not just in cricket.

“He is known as The Wall, isn’t he? In politics also, we need walls, to keep out vested interests,” quipped the minister.
