In addition, Dravid added, “I think it was a wonderful lesson for me to recognise that while I could be incredibly delighted and excited about achieving a 100 in school cricket, I am still not well known.”
In a recent episode of Olympic gold medalist shooter Abhinav Bindra’s “In the Zone” podcast, India coach Rahul Dravid offered a never-before-told story from his time in school.
Bindra questioned Dravid about the day he made a century in school cricket as his name appeared in the newspaper, but the article misidentified him and named him Rahul David.
Evidently, the editor believed that Dravid could not possibly exist and that there was a spelling error.
“Because of name is much more widely used. Therefore, I believe it was a wonderful lesson for me to learn that, despite how thrilled and glad I may be to have scored a century in a game of school cricket, I am still relatively unknown. Furthermore, nobody even knows my name.
They have to change my name because they can’t even trust it to be correct, Dravid said.
A few years back, Dravid said about how seeing Bindra win the Olympics gave him motivation and motivated him to give his career “that one more push.”
