Rahul Dravid: What he said, really meant and definitely didn’t


Rahul Dravid

What he said:

“I am a married man, do you think I would have any other answer?”

Rahul Dravid is not averse to wives and girlfriends joining cricketers on tour. The former India No. 3 pooh-poohed notions that the practice¬†adversely impacts players’ performances.

Interacting with the audience after delivering the keynote Dilip Sardesai memorial lecture, he said:

“On a serious side, cricketers travel 11 months in a year, I think wives and girlfriends should be allowed to travel with players. You can’t start blaming wives or girlfriends for performances, that’s not done.

Since I’m married, I would say yes. Wives, girlfriends, or a partner of any gender should be allowed, because the Indian team travels for almost the entire year. You can’t start blaming them for the players’ poor performance. In fact, if you don’t allow them, that would be a bigger problem!”

 

What he really meant:

“Do you really think I wish to argue with my home minister (wife) about this? Spare me the torture.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’m going to be the best man at Virat’s wedding.”
