A bright moment in History that shines brigher due to a star - RAHUL DRAVID

What a moment? What a feeling? What an ambience of excitement? These are some of the moments that more than a billion people will cherish their whole life. If 10 or 20 years down the line you might be talking to your kids or grandkids. You will be watching cricket on the TV and your team will come up with a thumping win. At that precise moment you will reminisce the an exciting test match. That was played and won by Dravid for India on the 15 of December 2003 at the Adelaide Oval in Australia. A defining moment for this team and everyone that helped bring it here. It is almost the crown jewel for John Wright during his career as Indian coach.

No matter what he does from now on he will be remembered, revered and respected all over the country for what he has done. He has taken a bunch of raw talent and molded them into a team that can win! that can WIN! There is a difference between potential and realising it. This is it. Hard work, application and dedication to the team's cause.

You have to marvel at this guy from Bangalore. Rahul Dravid. What a guy!! You don't deserve to be treated any less than Tendulkar or Gavaskar. You are the man for India and you have been consistently so for I don't know how long. The history books will show that you were the most important anchor for the team and the most important test cricketer for India since Gavaskar. You will always be in our hearts and minds for the feat you've achieved. Being on the field for 26 hours in one game and still going strong with a smile on your face. You are the mark of a great man, a great sportsman and most of all a great human being. If nothing else you will be remembered by people like us for what you have achieved. Only the people who understand the suffering can appreciate the sweet taste of this victory. You give hope, you give energy to people that don't believe things are possible for us.

It is a great time to be an Indian cricket fan. We will always remember this day and this moment.

BHARATH MATA KI JAI!!
