Cricket News: Rahul Dravid is more than just a name; he is a figure that many aspiring cricketers desire to be. Whatever is said in his honour will be insufficient because the veteran’s contribution to Indian cricket will be remembered for a long time. Dravid has come a long way to set a standard that will be difficult to equal in the future, from playing match-winning knocks for India to developing emerging talent at Bengaluru’s National Cricket Academy.

After India’s departing coach Ravi Shastri declared his resignation at the end of his tenure, Dravid’s country was calling. As a result of the events, Dravid was given the position of India’s head coach, which he accepted. Despite being in a position of greater prominence, Dravid has maintained his humble demeanour, as evidenced by a recent gesture from the cricket legend.

What a generous gesture by Rahul Dravid!

Ajaz Patel and Rachin Ravindra performed well to stay to the wicket and help the Kiwi team rescue a draw after losing 9 wickets in pursuit of a difficult mark set by the hosts at Kanpur’s Green Park stadium. While everyone expected the pitch to degrade on Day 5 of the match, the surface at the venue maintained its character until the final ball, making the contest a true nail-biter for both the bowler and the batters.

Despite the fact that the pitch’s condition stayed unchanged until the final ball of the game, India’s head coach Rahul Dravid wasted no time in praising the surface’s beauty. Meanwhile, he donated INR 35,000 to the Green Park stadium groundsmen who had prepped the pitch. The news that Rahul had congratulated the venue’s groundsmen became public after the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association disclosed it in the press box after the game.

“We’d like to issue an official statement. Mr Rahul Dravid has personally paid Rs 35,000 to our groundsmen “The Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association expressed its displeasure with the situation.
