He has been a run scoring machine, tormented the opposition on his own and also achieved a lot of success as a captain. Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh, however, introduced his incredible fielding ability in a video he shared on Twitter.

Harbhajan Singh: Outstanding catcher Rahul Dravid
Sharing a compilation of videos, Harbhajan Singh, once a regular teammate of Dravid called him an ‘outstanding catcher’. Commentator Aakash Chopra was also quick to join the appreciation post as he retweeted the video and commented, “Agree 100%. Wonderful hands. I also kept telling Jam to field at short-leg….but he wouldn’t come in. Too modest to admit that he was indeed the best in the playing XI at that position”.
