Rahul Dravid, who won heart of everyone both as a player and a coach, celebrates his 46th birthday today. Dravid is one of the most respected and reputed cricketers around the world. It’s natural for every cricket fan to wish Dravid on his special day. However, it was Virendra Sehwag’s quirky birthday wish that caught everyone’s attention on Twitter.
By using Dravid’s nickname ‘The Wall’ in really brilliant way Viru tweeted, “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).” Dravid’s nickname was coined to describe his steady batting technique full of determination.
With the tweet, Sehwag also shared a picture where we can see Virender Sehwag and Rahul Dravid in an Indian cricket jersey. Sehwag added, “A joy to have played with him and made so many wonderful memories together #HappyBirthdayRahulDravid!”
