From which web site I can watch address of rahul dravid and ohter batsman?
No body would land their e-mail addresses in an open forum. If you want write to any player you can go to the BCCI web site and post a message. Trying to find that is a seriously tiring business. I'm not too sure whether BCCI have a web site at all.
Should another young player be given a chance in place of Rahul Dravid in the Current IPL series?
Dravid may not have the best strike rate but he is not the reason RCB are losing (atleast he is not the only reason). If some one has to be dropped it should be Jaffer. He hasn't even played in ODIs. Switching from Tests to T20 mode is difficult.
there have been visible signs of improvement in dravid's captaincy. experience is a very crucial factor and dravid's experience has helped him evolve as a good captain.however this doesn't imply that he is a best captain we have ever had.
there is still room for improvement and the indian team will be in a position to reap the benefits of his captaincy only when he is given a long run as a captain.
What are your Greatest memories related to Rahul Dravid?
His match-winning partnership with VVS Laxman in the Kolkata test match, in which he scored 180 runs.
His two 300+ Partnerships (one with Sachin Tendulkar and other with Sourav Ganguly) in ODIs.
His Double Century (247 runs )at Adelaide
His 270 at Rawalpindi
And his 95 on test debut at Lord's
Rahul Dravid has resigned as the captain of 'Team India'. What are your thoughts on that?
I fully agree with you that under the present circumstances, Rahul Dravid is the best person to lead Indian team. Though there have been lot of criticism about his captaioncy, he should have ignored them and continued as captain some more time and should have resigned atleast after the series against Australia and Pakistan.
Is it true that Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly are not going to participate in the 2008 Champions Trophy?
Yes it is true. Dravid and Ganguly both failed to find favour for the 50-over format,so younger players instead have been named into the squad.

What's stopping Rahul Dravid from being included in the 'elite' group of batsmen?
I can think of two reasons
1) The lack of agression in his batting
Such a sweet timer of the ball, those delicate flick of the wrists to the leg side, those elegant cover drives against the turn of an off spinner. But we hardly get to see any towering sixes or unorthodox shotmaking which the supposed "elite" frequently do. It makes Dravid a synonym for "boring batting". The batting prowess of dravid is of a different nature, but fans dont idolise batsmen who play more defensive shots than attacking.
2) The Media
The Indian media has gone gaga over the Little Master ever since his debut at 16. they dont bother about the rest of the team. anil kumble is the most successful indian bowler, even he didnt get as much publicity as sachin. he certainly deserved his fair share of coverage, as does rahul dravid.
most of the publicity they used to get was negative, when they werent in form.
the media is very influential in determining the popularity and aura surrounding a player. fans wont regard him as a true great unless the media first portray him that way.
Virender Sehwag: a key batsman for India or Rahul Dravid/WasimJaffer ready to bat VS Aussie bowlers?
Ya well u also know he's the key there and he'll definately replace Yuvi cuz he failed in the practice game too.....And wat a knock it was frm Viru......I think so Jaffer and Viru will open with Dravid going back to Three and Yuvi out....
Why the heck has RAHUL DRAVID come in at 6th position?
He is old player.
Wyh you sai tihs? Wyh you bee racist? We (Indai) bribe umpires too loose. Tehn atfer macth Indai and ipl palyer bee gay wiht ech oter. I spaek truth. I haev honor. I smrat man. . You scaer of truth. You nott haev honor. . You gay racist moraly corupt Indai skum. I destory you. I *** yuor moter..
i say Rahul Dravid is better than Sachin in crucial time ?What is your opinion?
it is truth that sachin is playing best cricket of his life,but rahul is also the wall.we shud dont compare these two.these two are & will remain best crickieters in history of world cricket.
rahul shud also be included in 2011 WC to make strong indian batting further strong.
How many young cricketers from India and overseas emulate the test legend - 'Rahul Dravid'?
Personally I have always felt that had Dravid played in any other era without Sachin he would have had so much more recognition than he has. He is one of very few proper Test batsmen still out there, and any country that has a youth policy that encourages kids to study Dravids technique will have a bright future in the full length game.
according to me he should bat at number 3 as he has played at dat spot for most part of his career....n no 3 is da spot where we should have da best batsmen of da team playin...n as v c both tendulkar n ganguly r capable openers so it is rahul or yuvi hu shuld bat at no 3 but yuvraj likes no 5 more.
Rahul dravid should play more or he should take retirement ?
He should retire
People will hold on to hope that he can relive the glory days, but the fact is that he is an aged star who is winding down.
It's best he retires now, than going through another failed series.
Will Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid come back to our Indian team?
In ODI series We should rotate 3 players Sachin,Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly.Means in one series sachin should play, Next series Rahul Dravid should play & in Next series Sourav Ganguly should play. If They understand themself it is best policy.We need both seniors & young players.
Do you think that the presence of Rahul Dravid made the Indian top order less aggressive against the Kiwis?
It was a difficult pitch.
India was without the best they usually have. Do not underestimate NZ bowlers and batsmen. They are good.
As for Rahul. That was his role. The Wall was needed to keep holding and supporting Sachin to score. He did well.
He had pressure on him as Kartik's wicket was lost early.
Do not forget, last trip of Rahul's to SL was quite a disaster, if memory serves me.
Should Rahul Dravid have declined selection to the ODI squad for the 2011 England series?
Yes.Rahul Dravid should have declined selection to the ODI squad.Well i am a great fan of Dravid & wanted to see him in ODIs.So my heart says he should not have declined his selection for ODIs, but my brain says that he did the right thing by announcing his retirement.
The Indian selectors are selfish.They didnt select him over 2 yrs and in the world cup 2011.But now they need Dravid because they know in England only Dravid can make them win, So they selected him.If this match would be in India,they would not have selected him.And after this series there is no guarantee that they would select him.
Selectors think that Dravid was begging to them for his selection.
So I think he did the right thing as he slapped the selfish selectors by his retirement.And he will be a having a respected farewell as well unlike Ganguly.He will remain the Great Wall of India forever.
Can Rahul Dravid back in the form and got the place in One Day Cricket ?
to prove himself he needs to get a chance......But what dhoni wants he gets, and hence, its highly unlikely that he will be given a chance.....
But If he does get a chance, mate, I have no doubt abt the fact that he will be back with a Bang! . I will never rule that possibilty out...afterall, what are fans for???He definitely deserves a place in the ODI's no doubt....he is a maestro, and artist , he deserves his place.....He is not in the team coz of dirty politics and nothing else.....
he is awesome, he deserves the place and once, dhoni or Vengsarkar steps down, I bet that he will definitely make it to the team..
Well, this is really a matter of personal opinion. But I believe it is time for him to perish or perform, just like any other player in the team.
He has had his time, if he cannot maintain a good record now and score runs for the team, there are many other players who are playing extremely well and deserve the place, just because he is experiencied he shouldn't stay.
I think now the selectors are also starting to lose patience with Dravid, maybe in a few series he will be out of the team unless he performs, maybe he himself will call it quits. But who knows what could happen?
Hope this helps
How interesting will it be to see Rahul Dravid play in IPL?
It would be very very interesting......
He is entering into a new phase of Cricket....
Most of us think that he is not fit of IPL that is he cannot cope up with T-20 matches....
But it is not the fact. Dravid is a technical batsman and thus he would be able to get 4s and 6s in the matches while executing his shots. Thus it would be a great fun to see him playing in IPL.
Even yesterday it's his calming effect that helped India win the match so convincingly. He made only 14 but helped Sachin to take care of the run rate. Rahul is the ideal foil for someone like Sachin or Yuvi.
Who is a better player - Rahul Dravid or Sachin Tendulkar?
Both have contributed a lot to indian cricket. Sachin and Dravid had won us countless number of matches. We cant compare both players as they have different style,play at different positions and have different roles in team.
who is the best in test cricket among sachin and rahul dravid?
I think 'Mr. Dependable' Rahul Dravid 'The Wall'.Check these points:
1. If you want to check records then in terms of runs Dravid is just 2000 runs behind the top scorer (Sachin Tendulkar) even though he started his career after 7 yrs of Sachin.
2. Dravid is the world's best batsman in terms of technique.
3. Dravid plays for team & country but Sachin plays for records not for team.
4. Dravid always plays well under pressure or when team is in trouble whereas Sachin never plays well when team requires it most or in trouble or under pressure.
5.Sachin can make runs but Dravid can win or save the match.
6. Dravid has the world record of most runs in 2nd innings.
7. Nobody in world has faced more deliveries than him even Sachin.
8. He is the only batsman in the world who has scored a century in & against each test playing nation.
I think I missed some points.
Metal pressure to him is when he was capatain the boys not support his decision. He don't have support from team selection committe & players support to come back strongly.
He left captaincy because of boys didn't support him properly.Captain needs full support from his team.
But he will come back strongly in comming matches.
He always play for team , he will come back strongly no doubt about it.
But lot of FANS are here to support him, to get back strongly
