Rahul Dravid: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid

Rahul Dravid Is Ready For The IPL

What he said:

"I’m preparing for the IPL."

Rahul Dravid jokingly answers a query as to why and how he uncharacteristically slammed a couple of sixes in his 36th ton in the second Test at the Eden Gardens against the West Indies.

Dravid said:

For six weeks with your IPL team, you’re hitting shots all the time.But I don’t think it’s just that. Whenever I’ve been in good form in my career, everything seems to flow. I pick up the length better and get fully forward or back. It’s also about not missing out on the fours.

What he really meant:

“Isn’t that more believable?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“IPL is excellent preparation for the ardours of Test cricket.”
