Just Short

Test Match Sofa started an initiative where they published a short write-up of their favorite cricketers and opened it up to the fans and listeners as well. So, like any normal listener would do, I wrote with in the next 5 minutes a brief profile of my favorite cricketer, Rahul Dravid, and here it is:


There was always something endearing about Rahul Dravid, a batsman that had the look on his face as if he was trying to solve a differential equation while going back and across.  I had heard about his domestic exploits but the 95 runs on debut at Lord’s when he started his recurring role as the bridesmaid, made me a believer. He perfected the role in one of the greatest test matches in India’s history at Kolkata (2001). He has kept wickets, led the country, written foreword to Steve Waugh’s book, scored gazillion runs, and all that quietly. Take note Chris Gayle.


I was told that the write-up can have a maximum of 100 words. When I was done with it, I counted the words and it was 99. Just short. The story of the life of Rahul Sharad Dravid!

FaceTweet it!

  1. Am sure the count was 95 when you checked. Hence added the last sentence.

  2. nice one…me likes that RSD is thecricketcouch’s favourite cricketer 🙂

  3. doing things quietly has its down side too… since you never approached anybody you won’t be approached the moment your position become bit iffy…

    blog-rolled you… 🙂

  4. SP – True. But would RD have it any other way? I don’t think so..

    Thanks for blogroll.
