Dravid bowed out of service after a career spanning 16 years. Though he will be remembered for his stone-solid defence, he will hope that he can make as big a name for himself as a commentator and ambassador for the game. His acceptance speech at the 2011 Sir Donald Bradman Oration in Canberra highlighted how far Indian cricket had come. The Bangalore boy who made a sparkling 95 on debut at Lord's in 1996 is now gracing the iconic English commentary service Test Match Special-if ever there was recognition of a pundit's quality, that was it. His analysis on pre- and post-match TV coverage is refreshing in its honesty and clarity. The great hope in cricket is that Dravid gets into administration and channels all the money and enthusiasm around the sport towards a healthy future.
