Sachin Tendulkar:
“He (Dravid) is a perfect role model for youngsters. He has set a great example for all of us to follow. We are all trying to follow that path,”

Mahesh Bhupati:
He deserves his success as he has worked hard for it. He is one of the most down to earth and disciplined professionals I’ve met.”

Javagal Srinath:
“I have also not seen him lose his temper. He has that uncanny skill of keeping his frustrations to himself. He hates to get out though and you can see the restlessness in him till he gets his act together in the next outing. He is the most hard working guy in the side.”

Allan Border:
“Everyone has already exhausted superlatives so I would not bother myself with any additional praise but you could be sure my admiration for him has grown tremendously.”

“Rahul is always been in the shadow of Sachin. If you take his record it’s as good as Sachin’s but you cannot compare both as they are different kind of players. Rahul is a complete cricketer.”

Shane Warne:
“Rahul Dravid being known as ‘The Wall’ is pretty much spot on. ‘The fortress’ could also describe Rahul. Because once, Dravid was set, you needed the bowling equivalent of a dozen cannon firing all at once to blast him down,””

Chris Gayle:
“Dravid Could play attacking cricket like me but i could never play like him”

Shahid Afridi :
Once Shahid Afridi was asked for his Favourite Player and He says “Rahul Dravid”

Brian Lara :

Brad Hogg :
“Nothing can beat experience”

Matthew Hayden:
“All this going around is not aggression. If
you want to see aggression on cricket field, look into Rahul Dravid’s eyes”

Peter O’ Toole (Legendary Irish Actor):
Everyone praises Sachin Tendulkar. He may be a genius in his own right but in my book, Rahul Dravid is the artist. Dravid’s defence tactics, his strokes, his cuts, his grace are truly amazing. I’d like to meet the chap sometime and take my hat off to him.”

Ian Chappell:
“Team in trouble? Whom do you turn to?
Rahul Dravid!”

Steve Waugh:
“Rahul is the kind of person who young cricketers can look up to; not only because of his success but also because of the way he conducts himself.”

Brett lee:
“If you can’t get along with Dravid, you’re struggling in life”

Glenn McGrath:
“Dravid has been a class player for a long time now and we know his ability better than anyone. He’s not like the other guys who love scoring off every ball, and there’s no real weakness in his game either.”

Shoaib Akhtar:
“Even though Sachin is great, I have always found Rahul more solid and hard to get out. He has a solid defense and plays less shots than others. When a batsman plays less shots than it is tough to get him as he makes less mistakes.”

Ed Smith:
“It is  not an exaggeration to say that a whole strand of the game – a rich vein that  runs through the game’s poetic heart – departs the scene with India’s  greatest-ever No. 3. Playing T20 cricket won’t teach anyone to become the next  Rahul Dravid.”
