There are many cricketers who have overshadowed their teammates with their own talent. They were so good, that the other layers were declared underrated as the expectations of the fans rose with the comparison of standards. Although rules of playing cricket remain the same, every player has their own strengths, ability, techniques, and skills to play the game. Sachin Tendulkar, the former Indian cricketer is one of the greatest batsmen of all time in the entire world. He was well-known for his strokes and urge for scoring centuries. Sachin Tendulkar is a player with many unbelievable records. But, the ‘Master Blaster’ has overshadowed many of his teammates too. One of them was Rahul Dravid ‘The Wall’, another former Indian cricketer.
Rahul Dravid was known for his sound batting skills who led the Indian national cricket team as its captain briefly. But before that, he was captained by Sachin Tendulkar. Rahul Dravid is the fourth-highest run-scorer of Test cricket and Sachin Tendulkar leads the list till today. ‘The Wall’ was known for his excellency in everything on the field. In fact, he was praised by many critics, but not as Sachin Tendulkar. Rahul didn’t get much scope to rise, as the spotlight was on Sachin back in those days.
But Rahul Dravid will be remembered by many, and the team understands the value of the former player now. He was a great player indeed but, his career was overshadowed by Sachin Tendulkar.
