    Is Dravid an all time great?

    We always talk about Lara,Ponting,Sachin,Kallis,Waugh....what about Dravid?Is he an all time great or just a good batsman?Statswise he is incredible with an away average of 57 and he is the only batsman to have scored a test century away from home against all test playing countries.

    Terrific number 3 I reckon and for me the third best Indian batsman of all time behind Tendulkar and Gavaskar. Will definitely fit in an all time great team.

    That phrase doesn't really mean anything. Dravid was awesome, that's all we really need to say.

    Great player Dravid. Admire him enormously. So mentally tough too, in an understated kind of way. Respect.

    That's silly. You can be top 10 in 2010 but by 2040 maybe only be top 15 as there have been 5 players become slightly 'greater'.

    That doesn't remove your legacy.
