During his glittering career, Rahul Dravid was known for his patience and calm in the creases. David was one of the biggest batters in history and ordered to respect his peers around the world. The former Indian captain earned the nickname “The Wall” and made quite a few memorable knocks. Known for his calm attitude, David didn’t panic when he was hit by a hostile player. But if former England all-rounder Dermot Reeve could be believed, he once fell into it.
Reeve, who conducted three tests and 29 ODIs in England, recently revealed that his sled had dismissed David during a 2000 county match.
Reeve, who was coaching Somerset at the time, entered the field as a fielder to replace David at Kent’s crease.
Reeve, enthusiastic about getting an Indian star, verbally killed David.
“He was an Indian wall. He told me,” You are the only one who knocked down that wall. You gave me a lot of sticks, I ended up chasing one and getting caught. You’re the only person you’ve ever sneaked into my skin, “Leave told the Daily Mail.
When asked David that he had made India so frustrating, Reeve asked, “How did this guy play for India? He must have had a family on the selection committee. He has a shot. No. He just blocks it.
“I continued many times, and he went out. That made me very disliked, but I wasn’t there to make friends. We Was there to win the match. “
