Not only has he brought hours of pleasure to millions of his fans, he has played the game with exemplary courage, passion and commitment. In this he has been one of the biggest icons of cricket and a role model for the youth of the country. Rahul Dravid's talents go far beyond batting. He never wanted to keep wickets.

For someone who firmly believes that destiny lies in his hands, first opening the batting, then wicketkeeping and more recently captaincy have been thrust on him. On each occasion Rahul Dravid has welcomed the additional responsibility with the spirit of a warrior. In this book, Rahul Dravid : A Biography, the author, an eminent cricket journalist, captures the essence of the man we all know as The Wall. Etched in print are Rahul Dravid's flawless technique and outstanding achievements.
