A Wall for the Wall...

Its good to know that despite all the media speculation regarding the seniors and all this talk about replacing them with juniors, the cricket authorities still show them the respect that they deserve.

The Karnataka State Cricket Association has gifted Rahul Dravid a Wall.

Class, Commitment, Concentration - Thats what is engraved on the wall and aptly so!

Its made up of 10,000 bricks to signify the 10,000+ runs Dravid has scored in both tests and ODIs.

So what happens when he reaches 12,000? They'll add more bricks?

The best thing I like about the wall is the electronic timer that will keep ticking over as Dravid keeps scoring international runs.

Brilliant idea. Job well done KSCA.

    its good you have covered this. dravid will be remembered as one of the best batsmen of all time. at his best he was more consistent and reliable than tendulkar. the only thing he lacked was aggression in batting.

    a great human being and great player for india.

    Thanks Khansahab and Ankit.

    Khansahab - I have seen Dravid be aggressive when he needed to be. Thebest example was the IPL - he played some amazing innings. Felt bad for him that he had such a shit team.

    UTP it sure is. Somehow I think all of them will deliver against the Aussies.
