Celebrated All-rounder lauds his former IPL team-mate
By IPL Desk
Mumbai 12 March 2012
Rahul Dravid’s 16-year-long cricketing career is an inspiring story of hard work, dedication and success. His recorded achievements have won him a place alongside the all-time sporting greats. But it is the respect he has earned among his own team-mates, and cricketing colleagues from across the world, that is his true legacy.
Jacques Kallis, all-rounder par excellence, raised a toast to Dravid in an exclusive chat with bcci.tv. “He has been a shining example of what a true servant to the game represents,” he said.
A hallmark of Dravid’s batting was the price he put on his wicket. Kallis, who bats with a similar doggedness, values this ability of his Indian counterpart. “He has one of the best techniques that I have seen. Once you got him out, you always felt that you had a chance [in the game].”
The two giants of the game shared dressing-room space at the Royal Challengers Bangalore for three years.
“He was a very quiet and kind man who always played the game in the right spirit. I was fortunate to play in a few games alongside him during the IPL,” the South African star said.
“What he has achieved in the game is incredible. He set high standards for himself and for India. The game will be poorer for not having him around but I’m sure he will enjoy his retirement; he deserves it and he will be missed.”
RR co-owner says Dravid will captain, coach, mentor side

We may not get to see Rahul Dravid in the India blues anymore but we’ll still have a glimpse of the genius as he puts on the blue and gold jersey for Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2012. Dravid will lead the side at the fifth edition of the tournament beginning April 4.
"Rahul Dravid will be the coach and the mentor as far as the team is concerned," Royals co-owner Raj Kundra was quoted as saying.
"He was my first choice when the board sat down and said, ‘Who do you want as captain?’ We had to make the decision. I had only one name and that was Rahul Dravid," Kundra added.
Dravid, who has taken over the mantle from the Australian spin wizard Shane Warne, served Indian cricket for 16 glorious years before calling it a day on March 9. He ended his international career as the second-highest run-getter and with the highest number of catches in Tests to his credit.
"He is someone the Indian players look up to and the international players respect. He is a role model. He is very calm and collected," Kundra said.
"This year we have given him a decent team as per his requirements. We have some great players. I hope he gives us the result we had in season one."
Dravid scored 343 runs in 12 matches in his first season with RR in 2011 and has a total of 1241 runs from 55 games in the IPL.
