The gem of a person that Rahul Dravid is

In an interview to Ed Smith, Rahul Dravid said that as a schoolboy, he remembered many kids who had at least as much desire if not more to play professional cricket as he did - they attended every camp and net session, no matter the cost or difficulty of getting there. But you could tell - from just one ball bowled or shot played - that they simply did not have the talent to make it. He knew he was different. "I was given talent to play cricket", Dravid explained. "I do not know why I was given it. But I was. I owe it to all those who wish it would have been them to give of my best, every day".

Sir, you will be missed.
