“Imagine a manager of a rival team and a cricket wall, Sir Rahul Dravid comes to greet you and your friends. That day I learned a lesson ‘Humility is the key to success’ #RahulDravid,” he added in his tweet.

The batsman finally announced his retirement from international cricket in March 2012. He ended his career with 48 international centuries. Dravid took over the role of head coach of Team India in November 2021.
