“He was one of the special talent…” Rahul Dravid Gave A Blunt Verdict On Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli and Rahul Dravid, two of the most accomplished batsmen in Indian cricket history, reunited as coach and player in the Indian Test team. In a heartwarming video shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Kohli and Dravid reflected on their first meeting in 2011, where Dravid recognized the exceptional talent that Kohli possessed.

During Kohli’s debut Test series, Dravid recalled that he saw a young player who had already made a mark in One Day cricket and was starting to find his feet in the Test format. Even at that early stage of his career, it was evident to Dravid that Kohli had something special, and he believed that the young talent would go far.

“I remember it was Virat’s first Test series with the Indian team,” Rahul said. “He was this young kid who had done well in One Day cricket and was just beginning to find his feet in Test cricket. But you could see that there was a special talent out there, and he would be around.”

Kohli has undoubtedly lived up to Dravid’s expectations and more. He has established himself as one of the best batters in the world and has led the Indian team to numerous memorable victories. In the video, Kohli expressed his gratitude to Dravid, acknowledging the impact that their initial meeting had on his career. He considers himself blessed to have been part of the 2011 squad and is grateful for the opportunity to return to where it all began for him in Test cricket.

Dravid, in turn, commended Kohli for his achievements and expressed pride in his growth as a player. He humorously mentioned that the roles have now reversed, with him taking on the part of a young coach while Kohli continues to shine as a player.

Dravid commended Kohli’s efforts and added that he is proud of his achievements. “I think of myself as a young coach starting a journey as well,” Dravid laughs.” So the roles have reversed a bit.”
