Hosting the 2 World Cups in 1987 and 19996 changed a lot of things. One-day cricket became very popular with the fans in the 90s and we started to play a lot of ODIs since which reflects on our success in the World Cups of 1983 and 2011.

Rahul Dravid said : "It has been challenging wickets for both the teams, South Africa's fourth innings was probably their best with the bat. Yes, as a batting unit we can look to seize a few key moments and when we get partnerships, we can look to make them longer. It was challenging in the first innings but we could have gotten 55-60 runs more which could have made a huge difference" "Certainly, we would like to bat a little better. Maybe the guys who got starts could have converted them into 100s. That was the difference in the first game, we had Rahul scoring century for us and we ended up on the winning side.

It happens, it is the nature of the sport and we can take confidence from the way Vihari batted in this game," "I would not say we were complacent in this game, we were in this game.

Sunil Gavaskar said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "We all know what he is capable of. We all are changing our views and opinions about him every other day. One day he plays a blinder of an innings, the next day he plays a shot which makes you wonder.

HindustanTimes Wednesday, February 2, 2022 11:14:00 AM EAT

Sunil Gavaskar added ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "The reason we bring that Australia Tests up is that when he scored that 96 in Sydney, 89 is Brisbane, he gave himself time and only after that he started to go for the big shots. And that's because it becomes easier. You know what the pitch is doing, your feet are moving, you eye is set. And with all those shots, even if he scores 0 off 10 deliveries, in the next 4 he can score 16," "That is the capability that he has, so that is why now Rahul Dravid needs to sit with him and tell him some home truths. This is what is expected to you when you bat at No. 4. We don't want a strike rate of 300, we want a strike-rate where you are taking the team home. He has done it in the past and he can do it again. With that goodness in talent, comes a little sense of wanting to do that much better for the team" External link

What I feel is that positive intent is one thing… it doesn't mean that you start stepping out and play shots. Even when you play a defensive stroke, that too can be from positive intent. If you go and start swinging your bats and play such shots, question will be raised at you," "I would really want to see Pant getting more chances.

Sachin Tendulkar said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : “Rahul finally came to me and said he had heard that I was upset and wanted to have a chat… I was indeed upset. I asked him what the thinking was behind the declaration at that time… I was batting for the team as well. Yes, I had scored 194, but the 194 was meant to help the team and it was my individual contribution to the team’s cause. So to say that the decision was taken in the best interest of the team, wasn’t correct,” External link

Simon Doull told ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "I was thinking about DK going to Australia later on this year. India have got Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul as the backup keeper. You can't take DK!

Vinod Rai said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "Selecting Rahul Dravid was not a setback but a great thing for us. We tried to select Rahul Dravid for the post of the coach but at that time he was coaching the Under-19 team and he did not want to change. So, he refused that time but two years later when we approached him that NCA's post is in Bengaluru only you don't have to travel outside then he agreed to it and see after three and four years the team has selected Rahul Dravid as a coach, " External link

Sunil Gavaskar said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "It was a great delivery. Very few bowlers get that kind of a delivery straight up. Bowlers, especially fast bowler do take a little bit of time to get rhythm and confidence about their run-up. But that first ball… did Rahul do anything wrong? Nothing, he hadn't even poked at the ball. It moved really late and took the outside edge," External link

Ravichandran Ashwin said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "I was talking to Rahul Dravid , who was extremely sad. For a spinner, your shoulder and upper-half of the body has to be extremely strong because you have to use many rotations to spin the ball," External link

It’s a team game and the journey wouldn’t have been possible without you guys. Thanks to the BCCI too. I couldn’t have received it from a better person, my childhood hero. I still have that picture with you from my Under-15 days. In present-day cricket, with the amount we play with three formats and an IPL, the one takeaway the next generation can take from me is that I played 100 games in the purest format” External link

Akash Chopra said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "It is sad because too many changes are happening. COVID has made the selectors' job very easy, they can pick everyone.

Sunil Gavaskar said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "We all know what he is capable of. We all are changing our views and opinions about him every other day. One day he plays a blinder of an innings, the next day he plays a shot which makes you wonder. But somewhere down the line, my feeling is that Rahul Dravid will sit him down and tell him what a marvelous talent he is. And all that he needs to do is to give himself a little bit of time in the middle like he did in Australia," External link

HindustanTimes Wednesday, February 2, 2022 11:14:00 AM EAT

Sunil Gavaskar added ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "The reason we bring that Australia Tests up is that when he scored that 96 in Sydney, 89 is Brisbane, he gave himself time and only after that he started to go for the big shots. And that's because it becomes easier. You know what the pitch is doing, your feet are moving, you eye is set. And with all those shots, even if he scores 0 off 10 deliveries, in the next 4 he can score 16," "That is the capability that he has, so that is why now Rahul Dravid needs to sit with him and tell him some home truths. This is what is expected to you when you bat at No. 4. We don't want a strike rate of 300, we want a strike-rate where you are taking the team home. He has done it in the past and he can do it again. With that goodness in talent, comes a little sense of wanting to do that much better for the team" External link

Abhishek Sharma recalls ( about Rahul Dravid ) : “Rahul Dravid sir told us IPL auctions are going to be the part of your life, but you have to make the decision, which is more important to you – playing for India at present or the IPL, that you guys will play in the future.

Brad Hogg explained ( about Rahul Dravid ) : “Rahul Dravid has come out and said that he’s going to have a word about shot selection with him. I don’t think he needs to do that - technique or tactics. Stay away from that because we know he’s got the goods to deliver. It’s more psychological. Was he in a positive or a negative frame of mind. Did the verbals get to him? Those are the things you should be looking at. When he’s on song, I guarantee you that he’s in a different state of mind. This innings he was in a negative state of mind,” External link

Harbhajan Singh said ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "I would really want to see Pant getting more chances. He is a match-winner, and the day he plays those innings, he would win India the match.

Harbhajan Singh added ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "But at the same time, if the same shots click, we say 'What a bold player. He comes with a positive intent from the first ball'. What I feel is that positive intent is one thing… it doesn't mean that you start stepping out and play shots. Even when you play a defensive stroke, that too can be from positive intent. If you go and start swinging your bats and play such shots, question will be raised at you," "I would really want to see Pant getting more chances. He is a match-winner, and the day he plays those innings, he would win India the match. Rahul Dravid needs to speak with him in terms of batting in a certain approach.

Harbhajan Singh added ( about Rahul Dravid ) : "Every time I have played here, my best analysis have come at this venue. I picked up seven wickets in an innings in Cape Town. Even other spinners have performed well. So India too I feel should field two spinners at this venue. Who partners Ashwin from the other end is something Rahul Dravid and the team management will have to ponder," External link
