New Delhi: India's leading cricketers on Monday wished former skipper Rahul Dravid on the occasion of his 43rd birthday.
Dravid, now India's U-19 coach, was playing out the last few years of his career when the likes of Virat Kohli became regulars in the Indian team.
Though the current crop of Indian players didn't spend too much time with Dravid in the dressing room, he enjoys tremendous respect among them.
For someone like Ajinkya Rahane, Dravid has doubled up as a team member and mentor at Rajasthan Royals.
On the occasion of his birthday, here is what these Team India cricketers had to say about Dravid.
Happy Birthday Rahul Bhai. You are an inspiration always. Thank you for so many immortal cricket memories. #Legend
