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

Rahul Dravid relives a tale of Multani Mitti.

What he said:

“If I charged a penny for every time I was asked about the Multan declaration, I would be a multi-millionaire by now.”

Rahul Dravid responds to yet another query about the controversial declaration against Pakistan when he was the stand-in skipper that left Sachin Tendulkar stranded on 194. “The Wall” was present at the release of Sachin’s autobiography, “Playing it my way” together with Saurav Ganguly and VVS Laxman.

Rahul added:

“My greatest memory of that Test is asking Sachin to bowl the last over of the day after the declaration. He got Moin Khan out and he was visibly overjoyed because he was again doing what he did so many times – helping India win. We walked off as a team.”

What Dravid really meant:

 “I’ve been asked this question so many times now that I ought to just pen an autobiography myself and put all questions to rest. I’m sure it’d sell at least a million copies.”

What he definitely didn’t:

 “It was a collective decision; we knew Sachin was no Sehwag to bring up his double ton with a six.”
