It has been years since Rahul Dravid announced his retirement from cricket, but in times of despair, fans take hope from Dravid’s perseverance as a Test match specialist. In times of the Coronavirus, fans are remembering former India great in a unique way.

Some of the measures to prevent yourself from the virus is keeping your hands clean, and a Twitter thread gives the example of Dravid’s hand (the best gloveman) as the cleanest pair of hands. The thread also explains how Dravid batted against adversities. See the whole twitter thread here.


Rahul Dravid always showed great grit and perseverance every time the Indian team was in a spot of bother and rescued the team. The 47-year-old played 164 Tests for India from which he scored 13288 runs at an average of 52. In ODIs he played 344 games, scoring 10889 runs at an average of a little over 39.

Dravid announced his retirement in January 2012. His last international game was the India vs Australia Test in Adelaide. Post-retirement, Dravid worked as the coach of India A and India U19, and at present, he works as the head of operations at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.

Talking about the coronavirus, it has spread throughout the world and the total number of cases in India has crossed 100. Schools and colleges across the country have been ordered to remain shut till March 31, with offices offering work from home opportunities. Sporting events across the world have been cancelled, including the India vs South Africa ODI series.

There is no guarantee of when the situation will get better, but at this hour of crisis when most people are locked in their houses and have little to nothing to do, the above lessons from Rahul Dravid so teach us a lot.
