New Delhi: Indian middle-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane on Monday thanked mentor Rahul Dravid on his 43rd birthday.
Wishing The Wall on his big day, in a video posted by BCCI on Twitter, Rahane said, "I have been really lucky to play alongside with you. I have really learnt many things from you, from your batting, and in general about my life. Thank you so much for whatever inputs you gave me. It is really helping me and I am sure it will help me in my future."

Rahane was lucky to open innings with Dravid for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, even after the veteran cricketer had drawn curtains to his magnificent career.
Several members of the Indian cricket team, including Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan wished Dravid on his birthday earlier in the day.
