Rahul Dravid, the head coach of Team India, turned 50 on Wednesday. The fourth-highest run scorer in the longest format of the game, Dravid is widely considered one of the finest hitters of his age. He played for India in 162 Tests and 344 ODIs. Shahnawaz Dahani, a Pakistani bowler, sent a beautiful birthday message for Dravid on his official Twitter account. Dravid, the former captain of India, is known as “The Wall” because of his extraordinary defensive skills with the bat.

Dahani recounted his encounter with Dravid when he congratulated the head coach of the Indian men’s team on his birthday. Dravid is renowned for being modest and cautious.

“Happy Birthday to Sir Rahul Dravid, the most modest Person. The following is the image’s backstory. During the world cup, I was in Brisbane, Australia, eating dinner with some friends. In the same restaurant where he first spotted me, Sir Rahul Dravid arrived. He came to me and greeted us all with a lot of respect and affection before leaving to locate a seat for himself. We all took photographs with him, Dahani said.

“Imagine Sir Rahul Dravid, the wall of cricket and coach of a rival team, greeting you and your buddies. “Humility is vital to succeeding,” I learned that day, thanks to Rahul Dravid “Furthermore, Dahani wrote.

When the T20 World Cup took place in Australia last year, Dahani was one of Pakistan’s backup players. His latest outing for the squad was in the shortest format against New Zealand in October 2022. He has so far played for the national team in two ODIs and 11 T20Is.

Dravid is now participating in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka with the Indian side. India made a winning start to the year under Dravid’s coaching when the side defeated Sri Lanka 2-1 in the T20Is.
