Rahul Dravid - A Biography by Vedam Jaishankar - Hardcover
Noted cricket writer Vedam Jaishankar's biography of Rahul Sharad Dravid is a must-read for the eat-cricket, sleep-cricket, drink-cricket buffs. It throws insight into the life of the shy young boy from Bangalore who went on to become the "Great Wall of Indian Cricket". The writer's proximity to the player has proved handy in data collection. The book which runs to 168 pages is an account of Dravid's meticulous rise from a school boy to the vice-captain of the Indian team, not to mention becoming the most reliable batsman, earning sobriquets like Mr Consistent, Mr Dependable and The Wall etc. Stats gurus can take pleasure from his statistical accomplishments narrated right from the first-class level. And for the aestheticians' delight, there are photographs right from his childhood to his recent marriage. The book illustrates his humble beginnings, his various trials and tribulations with "the wise men" who at one stage kept him out of the ODI squad dubbing him as too slow in the shorter version of the game. The way he volunteered to take up wicketkeeping in a school game shows his determination to excel under all trying circumstances, while the fact that he is still forced to don the big gloves remains an irony.
