Twitterati floods with wishes for ' The Wall' Rahul Dravid on 44th birthday”

Rahul Dravid, the man who was the backbone of the Indian batting line-up for years, turns 45.

Twitteratti poured in with wishes for the former Karnataka batsman. Dravid's cricketing career was a scintillating one and he ended it with numerous records against his name.

As far as first-class cricket is concerned, Dravid has hammered 23,794 runs including 68 centuries and 117 half-centuries, in 298 matches he played in his career.

In this particular segment, let us take a look at five bowlers whose first ever Test wicket was the legendary Indian batsman Rahul Dravid. After his retirement from the worldwide cricket, Dravid was offered the position to coach Indian cricket team, but he turned it down and chose to nurture the young cricketers instead. During the 2000s, the "fab four" of Indian Cricket used to be one of the best middle-orders in the world, especially in Tests. He was always well-spoken off the field, he was always considered as a true gentleman when it comes to the game itself.

Born on January 11, 1973, Dravid is now serving the Indian team as the Overseas Batting Consultant and Head Coach of India Under-19 and India "A" teams. Known as the "wall", the former Indian skipper started playing at the age of 12 and since then there has been no turning back. Samit scored 150 winning for Mallya Aditi International School as they defeated Vivekananda School by a massive 412 runs.
