'Dravid true team-man'

'Dravid true team-man'

Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni spoke about how different was Rahul Dravid in terms of showing aggression at a felicitation function for the former India captain here on Tuesday.

“At a time when it is considered that aggression is verbal, he never said a word to the opposition. He showed the aggression through taking a catch or staying at the crease and channelise the discomfort and aggression in the best possible manner.

“He is one of the greatest to play the game and the greatest to play at number three. He is someone who has got most catches.

“He was always ready to do anything for the country and the team when it came to opening the batting, wicket-keeping or fielding at silly point or at the slips.”

Dhoni also said that Dravid would easily overcome difficult phases. “India lost in the first round in the 2007 World Cup and then there was a phase were we won 20-22 matches chasing and Rahul Bhai has been a part of both. He was someone who would walk through the obstacle,” Dhoni remarked.
