The Wall doesn't crumble.

Though Rahul Dravid is not my favourite, I appreciate his contribution to Indian cricket.

He has rightly been nicknamed "The Wall" for his ability to play long innings in test matches and thwart attempts of the best bowlers to get him out.

When Dravid has done well, India has won, but that is not necessarily the case with Sachin Tendulkar.

Dravid reminds me of English Test batsman of yesteryear John Edrich. He would also play long innings and once continued playing after being hit by fast bowlers and fracturing his ribs, such was his tenacity.

I was watching the second Test match against the West Indies and the commentators said Dravid had made cricketing history by facing the highest number of deliveries in Test history.

This is incredible and shows the grit and doggedness of this great batsman.
