Is there anything in cricket that Rahul Dravid is better at than Sachin Tendulkar?


In a broader sense, Dravid is excellent at leaving those things alone, which might seem really lucrative, which he doesn't want. Be it the (excess) limelight or the politics of the game and beyond, fortunately and/or purposefully, he has really distanced himself nicely from all these..

I understand Sachin has only played cricket since he came to senses, and we should be grateful he gave all that to cricket, and so it was difficult for him to just walk away. But the way Rahul did it, deserves great attention and even greater respect.

Vikram Sathaye put it nicely once, if Sachin is the mother of (who thinks endlessly for the welfare of and gives everything to)Indian cricket, then Rahul Dravid is the father (who is always there, without worrying about the credit).

I know Dravid fans will be hurted even am also a fan of Dravid. But truth is true.. my better suggestion to all Fans .. please don't compare any player with Sachin...,, Because sachin is "GOD"

Dravid Supporters:-
Saving the team in 4th innings : No one apart this man did it better in our era, especially overseas. (Laxman did it a few times but, RD delivered when it mattered the most). SRT did an amazing job batting in the top order (1st innings most of the time), also have been a reason for many wins. But RD has been class apart, a major reason for crucial ones.

Pissing of the bowlers : Ask any bowler who is a tougher one to bowl to, the answer would be 'Rahul'. Sachin can blast them all around the field even with a stump in his hand but, Dravid lets go of it in a polite manner even if its an inch away from the off stump. If you are a bowler you would know how frustrating it is to bowl a spell when the batsman is not even thinking to bring his bat into the frame. 

Square drive : Does any other batsman in the history of cricket play the square drive as good as LO'RD' did? Don't go in search of it, you will spend all your time searching. 

Last but not the least,

Sacrifice : All again i don't think some one can witness a soul that is so selfless than of RD in spite providing everything the team demanded. Siddu puts it well "Rahul Dravid is a player who would walk on broken glass if his team asks him to"

To sum up,

"Sachin is the real god of cricket, But when the doors are shut even the GOD is behind the WALL".
