Dravid`s stature will increase: Javagal SrinathBangalore: Former India cricketer Javagal Srinath acknowledged Rahul Dravid`s dignity and expects his stature to increase post retirement.

"No, it was not a surprise and it was a well planned one. He has done it at the right time and I completely endorse his decision," Srinath said on Dravid`s retirement from international cricket today.

"I don`t see Dravid`s value diminishing in any way since he has retired. I see his stature increasing," he said.


"Quitting the game is not an easy decision. Although it is sad, one needs to celebrate his achievements. What I appreciate about Rahul, is his dignity. The way he connects with the game."

"For me, he (Dravid) is the ideal person to look up to when you are facing a tough situation. He is one person who can navigate through tough situations," Srinath, who had played alongside Dravid for long, said.
