Chennai: Former Indian cricketer and commentator Laxman Sivaramakrishnan shared a touching incident with India head coach Rahul Dravid. He said this in his reply to a question raised by a Twitter user.
The game of cricket is known as the ‘gentleman’s game’. Indian team coach Rahul Dravid will have a special place in it. In this case, Sivaramakrishnan shared another side of him in this tweet. This shows his generosity.
In the third ODI between India and Australia, Indian spinner Kuldeep Yadav did not bowl according to the field set-up. Instead the Australian spinners had done it effectively. The user said in the tweet that experts like Sivaramakrishnan are necessary at times like this. Sivarama Krishnan has given the answer.
“I offered my services to Rahul Dravid. But he graciously said no to me working with the spinners under him as I am his senior,” Sivaramakrishnan said in his tweet. Rahul Dravid has said that it is not good for his senior to work under him. It seems that he values senior players that much.
I offered my services to Rahul Dravid and he said that I was too senior to him, to be working under him-with the spinners.
