Former cricketer Rahul Dravid won praise after India beat Australia on Tuesday at Gabba to retain the Border-Gavaskar trophy. Fans thanked Dravid – who is currently the head at the NCA – for gifting India talented cricketers like Rishabh Pant, Shubman Gill and Washington Sundar among others. The impact of Dravid as the head of NCA has been applauded as it has resulted in India with quality players.

Most of the cricketers who played a key role in helping India script history had once been coached and nurtured by Dravid – who was then in charge of the U-19 and India A teams.

Here is how fans thanked Dravid:

Dravid is considered one of the finest batsmen to have played the game. From the epic at Kolkata in 2001 to the match-winning knock at Adelaide a couple of seasons later, the former India captain has been part and architect of many wins against Australia.

India will now take on England at home with the first Test starting on February 5.
