Other users too praised Dravid, calling him the perfect parent.
As a youngster, I once got a seat close to the pavilion. Was constantly staring at Dravid with eyes full of admiration.After a while,he got up from his seat, came to me & whispered "Don't stare at me. I'm just like you. No different from you." He became a real hero to me.— Magizhmaran FCA (@elay_sad) November 24, 2017
This isn’t the first time that Dravid’s humility has won him praise.
Last year at the under-19 World Cup, after India posted a mammoth 372-run victory over Canada, the then coach Dravid spoke to the Canadian team members and told them that their defeat wasn’t because they were not as talented as his side but because they came from completely different conditions.
