This is the story of the recently retired cricketing legend, Rahul Dravid. It is an examination of the characteristics that made him the remarkable cricketer and person that he is. Summary Of The Book The book traces the illustrious career of one of cricket’s all time greats. It examines the various attributes of the man who started his cricketing career in 1996 and finished it as a legend. The book looks at the events and factors that contributed to shaping the career of Rahul Dravid, it relates his triumphs, and explores his trials and tribulations. It recounts his struggles to break free of the shackles and stereotyping that haunted him in his early years. From this book emerges the tale of a young man who overcame his weaknesses and used his own strengths to carve out a niche for himself in all forms of the game. He is a man who gradually emerged from the shadows of his legendary peers to claim his own place. The book highlights the mental, physical, and technical attributes that enabled Dravid to reach the heights he did in the game. His faith in the three Ds, which are dedication, determination, and discipline. Dravid, though living in the shadow of Tendulkar, has created records and shaped victories for India that ensure that he is up there among the greatest players of all time. He was never a man content to rest on his laurels. What was more important to him than personal glory was always the team’s cause. He is the first Indian to have scored five double centuries in test cricket. He was also the first Indian to score four centuries in four consecutive test innings, and the first test batsman to have scored a century against each of the test playing nations. This book is a tribute to a man who has retained his humility and graceful conduct while still scaling incredible heights in his profession, a man who is appreciated both by his own teammates as well as the opposition. He is not just respected as a player, but also as a person. The book contains reminiscences and tributes from his teammates, mentors, seniors, peers, and opponents. It also includes some exquisite photographs that have captured various moments in Dravid’s life. About Devendra Prabhudesai Devendra Prabhudesai is a BCCI executive and also a biographer.

Rahul Dravid is known to be a humble person in his game as well his countenance, never letting the public critique or the fame get to his head. The innings he played in his entire career has been magnificent and Prabhudesai does complete justice to his journey. He was the first Indian to score five double centuries in test cricket and four centuries in a consecutive four test innings.
