Former Indian captain Rahul Dravid lauded skills of Brendon McCullum and AB de Villiers and credited their adaptability. He joked that he is amazed watching them bat and wonders if he would have played shots like the two batsmen play in and out in every game. Dravid added that they are inspirational to students of the game who have unorthodox techniques. But he also cautioned people to be careful when they look to emulate players like de Villiers and McCullum. Ajinkya Rahane: Rahul Dravid will always remain one and only ‘Wall’ in cricket

Dravid was particularly impressed with the way de Villiers has adapted to various formats of the game, like playing out a day not scoring so many runs and scoring at will in the shortest format of the game. He added Virender Sehwag was one such player for India. Dravid is now a mentor for Rajasthan Royals, and could be seen as an advisor to the Indian Cricket team in near future.
