Former India cricketer Rahul Dravid lauded his team-mate Sachin Tendulkar as the latter moves towards the final two Tests of his career. Dravid and Tendulkar were a great partnership for India and formed the backbone of the Indian batting.

PTI quoted Dravid saying, "I played a lot of cricket with Sachin. I have seen him since childhood. He has been with the Indian team for a long time and he is a great cricketer not only in India but what he is accomplished, his statistics, his performance is difficult to replicate. Everything is known about him. Probably he is the most written about cricketer of this generation and probably ever.""
