‘That day I learnt a lesson’ – Shahnawaz Dahani recalls an incident with Rahul Dravid on his birthday

Former Indian cricketer and the current head coach Rahul Dravid turned 50 on the 11th of January. Wishes kept pouring in for the star cricketer from across the world. Dravid, also known as “The Wall of Indian Cricket” has given countless memories to his fans.

On his birthday, he received messages from across the border as well. Pakistan cricketer Shahnawaz Dahani also had a special message for the star Indian cricketer. In a Twitter post, Dahani put up a photo with Rahul Dravid and narrated the story behind the image in the caption.

The photo was clicked during the 20-20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. Dravid had run into Dahani in a restaurant and greeted him and his friends before heading to his table. This gesture by the Indian great deeply touched the Pakistani pacer.

In the meantime, Dravid left for Bengaluru early Friday morning, while the rest of the Indian cricket team, including support staff, departed for Thiruvananthapuram later that day for the third and final ODI against Sri Lanka. Dravid flew from Kolkata to Bengaluru early in the morning for health reasons.

He reportedly complained of blood pressure problems during the second ODI on Thursday and was examined by Cricket Association of Bengal doctors. There is no need to be concerned about Dravid’s health because he is fine and will most likely join the team in Thiruvananthapuram on Saturday before the match on Sunday.
