Bangalore: After senior India cricketer Sachin Tendulkar enthralled the Mumbai Masters fans by turning up for star shuttler Lee Chong Wei`s match, it was the turn of another batting stalwart Rahul Dravid to root for his city franchise at Sree Kanteerava Stadium here on Sunday.
Dravid`s presence could lift the morale of Banga Beats who have a huge task of winning their last two ties with big margins to remain in semifinals hunt as they clash with laggards Krrish Delhi Smashers in their penultimate round tie.
Dravid, who had retired from international cricket sat among the fans in the VIP box.
He (Major Dhyan Chand) is inspiration personified. He became synonymous with hockey. He became the parameter of hockey by which other player's calibre is measured.
