A video of former Indian captain Anil Kumble paying tribute to cricketer Rahul Dravid who retired from Test cricket on Friday.


Kumble thanked Dravid for his unmatchable contribution to Indian cricket.”Let me take this opportunity to congratulate Rahul. I am really fortunate to play along side you.


I've enjoyed every moment I've played with you. It's been an honour,” said Kumble.”You've been a constant friend and colleague I depended on for advice. You are an inspiration and a role model. You are among Karnataka's finest cricketing sons,” he added.


Praising Dravid for his commitment to Indian cricket, Kumble said his former team-mate had always been unassuming despite his achievements.”Every moment I have played with him, he has been quiet, unassuming and completely consumed by his enthusiasm and passion for the game. His career saw over 10,000 runs in ODIs, over 13,000 runs in Tests and a very unique record of over 400 catches in international cricket…a fantastic record indeed.
