A video of Board of Control for Cricket in India N Srinivasan paying tribute to veteran cricketer Rahul Dravid who on Friday announced his retirement from Test cricket.

 

Srinivasan said Dravid’s contribution to Indian cricket was immense and that the cricketer was irreplaceable in Indian cricket.

 

“I have mixed feelings. We have been privilege to see one of the finest cricketers India has produced … not only has he been a great player, he has been a great role model, the kind of person who cannot be matched,” said Srinivasan at the press conference where Dravid announced his retirement. 

 

“He is actually irreplaceable … none of us want to see such players go away, we like to think they are permanent, it is not easy to step away when you're still playing well. It is a sad day…for me personally. I have watched him grow from playing cricket in Chennai,” he added.
