Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid shared a lot of memorable moments in between them. They played quite a few years together for India and guided India to victory with their marathon partnerships as well.
Rahul Dravid has pure heart and mind – Virender Sehwag
There were the cases when Virender Sehwag used to trouble the bowlers by knocking boundaries at one end with ease. While on the other end, Rahul Dravid used to make the opposition bowlers toil hard to rattle his defence. Their 410-run partnership has always been special.
However, coming to the topic, the former swashbuckling opening batsman’s tweet to Rahul Dravid was quite funny. In his tweet, he quoted saying that the walls in the house have ears to listen but the wall of Indian cricket Rahul Dravid has Pure mind and heart as well.
Digging into his tweet, it read ”Deewaron Ke Bhi Kaan Hote Hain, is Deewar ka Bahut Saaf Mann Aur Hriday Bhi hai!(
#TheWall too has ears, this one has a pure mind and a heart as well) A joy to have played with him and made so many wonderful memories together.”
