Indian fencer Bhavani Devi credited former Indian skipper Rahul Dravid for his generosity and overwhelming support. Devi said Dravid fondly known as ‘The Wall’ was very patient and gave the fencing team some valuable inputs.

The Indian fencer Bhavani recalled the time when she was mentored by former Indian batsman Dravid at a mentorship programme way back in 2015. Thus, Bhavani remembered an incident when Dravid greeted all the players at the sporting event in a humble way.

“He [Dravid] was very patient. Dravid heard us out and then gave his inputs. He made us feel so comfortable. I respect him for his down-to-earth personality. It has taught me a lot about being a successful sports star,” Bhavani said as quoted by Economic Times.

Meanwhile, Rahul Dravid is well known for being down to the earth. Dravid is currently providing his invaluable insights to the Under-19 and India A side. He is currently on tour of England with the India A side.

In fact, Dravid has been instrumental in grooming the next generation of Indian cricketers. He has played a vital role in polishing players like Hardik Pandya, Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant and many more.

Therefore, Indian cricket will hope that the selfless former cricketer keeps giving it back to Indian cricket. Dravid had also led the Under-19 team to glory in the World Cup held earlier in the year in New Zealand.

Furthermore, Rahul Dravid has backed the young generation of players.

The youngsters have shown an upward swing in their improvement graph which is really satisfying for the former Indian batsman under the guidance of veteran Dravid.
