BCCI Just Put Ravi Shastri In The Same League As Rahul Dravid And Fans Are Ripping It Apart
As India trained for the 3rd and final T20I vs South Africa in Bengaluru on September 22, guess who dropped by? None other then The Wall Rahul Dravid! Hardly a surprise though as they are playing in his hometown and Dravid is grooming the next generation of cricketers.
No doubt the players were happy to see him and surely picked his brain for some tips. But his presence created a buzz on Twitter for different reasons. BCCI shared a photo of him being hugged by Ravi Shastri and captioned it as two greats meeting. Take a look:

In other words Shastri and Dravid were the two greats. Now as far as fans are concerned, there is no doubt of Dravid's greatness. But Shastri? Well no doubt he was a good player, but could one call him a great of Indian cricket? Fans did not think so and ripped BCCI apart. Shastri, for no fault of his own got trolled too. Check it out:

Dravid's words of wisdom will surely help as Virat Kohli's boys look to seal the series in the last game and take another step in their preparation for the 2020 World T20.
