With going against the time, Dravid stuck to the basics and dominated the field with his defensive batting style even when the era of reckless and offensive batting had taken over.

Dravid has always been India's superhero who showed up at the 11th hour to rescue his team from jaws of defeat and to victory, case in point, the Test match between India and England back in 2011 when Gautam Gambhir was unable to play due to a concussion and Dravid had to replace him as the opener. The block that he is, scored a stunning century.

Dravid is the nicest guy one could ever fancy meeting. For a person who has achieved so much, he has never been the one to let his success get to his head. While players of his stature tend to retire with a farewell tour, Dravid said 'goodbye' to the sport in a press conference in his home ground, the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

He was not called 'The Wall' for no reason. His knock against Australia in Adelaide back in 2003, where he scored a massive 233 runs in a single innings, exemplifies the reassurance Dravid was to the Indian cricket team. He was the backbone of the team that was essential for the proper functioning of the squad.

Dravid has always been the one to highlight the achievements of his teammates. Never shying away from acknowledging the efforts put in by a batsman he shared a successful partnership or a bowler who bagged a couple of wickets to get the team a win, he is all about his fellow Men in Blue. Bhogle once wondered aloud “How can a man be so selfless,” and we still don't have an answer.
