Bangalore: Dravid Speaks on Other Side of 'Wall'


Bangalore, Mar 7: It's not Glenn McGrath, Shoaib Akhtar, Courtney Walsh or even Shane Warne whose delivery is more fearsome for the Indian cricket's “Wall”, Rahul Dravid, but it is that of his two-year-old son Samit.

Dravid himself told this to BBC's Indian Editor, Sanjeev Srivastava at the popular radio programme “BBC Ek Mulaqat with Rahul” on Thursday.

Talking to Srivastava on how he spends time when he is out of the team, the dependable batsman said, “My son asks me new questions. Sometimes I can't answer his questions.” “It is very interesting to watch him grow. He is very fascinating to me. My son chants particular lines from a Hindi movie, which he likes so much. But I can't sing, because I don't know singing,” he said when Srivatsava asked him to sing those lines.

His eyes turned flashy when he talked about his tiny tot. Dravid, who had a busy cricketing schedule, said he found solace, at times, spending time with his son as his wife also travelled sometimes along with him.

The man who keeps vigil on a cricket ball and calculates how to send it to the fence or beyond for a six, however, was not lucky enough to get a glimpse of beautiful girls sitting on stands watching the cricket match.
