Sanju Samson About Dravid
“Each and every individual in the India A side or the juniors going into the Indian team have been fortunate to go through a person called Rahul Dravid. We are very lucky to learn our cricket from him. I remember going to the Rajasthan Royals trials one day – I batted really well – and he came up to me and asked me a question ‘can you play for my team?’.
“So, that was the biggest moment of my life, and I can never forget that. That shows how great a human being he is, and I really enjoy his company,” said Samson speaking exclusively in the ‘Follow The Blues’ Show on Star Sports.
‘I can pick up a lot of things from Dravid’: Padikkal
“Being from the same school, the first time I actually met him was in one of our sports day events at school, where I had to present him with a bouquet – that is when I spoke to him for the first time. I have always been awestruck by how incredibly calm and gentle a human being he is. To have achieved so much in cricket and to be so down-to-earth, humble, and kind towards everyone is incredible to watch”.
“To have him as our coach, you couldn’t ask for anything more, and to have a mentor like him beside you, it’s just a great feeling, and hopefully, I can pick up a lot of things from him,” said Padikkal about nature of Dravid.
