You did it all.

Keeper captain close in slip

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



One down open middle order flip

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



Dropped declare resign blip

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



Rahul Jammy Dravid Skip

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



Shooter target trigger click

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



One day no way go away hick

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



T20 not empty scored plenty tick

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



Coach’s boy, very coy, one big kick

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



Whipping boy, favourite toy, very, very sick

You did it all
Coz you were the wall



Soft spoken, invisible, just another brick

You did it all
Coz you were the wall

All this happened to him because he was the wall?

Naked Cricket said...

some of it yes. esp if you consider what a wall's used for

He's probably singing Ich bin ein Bangloriner a la JFK ... & down goes another wall ... all the king's horses & all the king's men, couldn't put the coach's pet together again!!!

utp said...

I rate him higher than Sachin...dont hate me...

Naked Cricket said...

Haha und Ja Ja sraghuna!
Achtung Wall ahead.

Naked Cricket said...

utp - this is the series when he'll know. personally think he can serve some more.

Straight Point said...

Naked Cricket said...

Amazing when you look back to see...the variety of Dravid's cricketing life is glaring...and the excellence he endeavored for in each role is even more striking.

Kudos to you as well Gaurav,...as is your wont, you continue to be Sehwagish, Tendulkarish, Ganguly Off-side namaha, Laksmanine vervy versatile songwriterish and always on the ball Dravid-ian Wall-like. :)

Get that guitar out I say and YouTube them all for posterity.

Nice one for the Wall - very Dravidian too. It's amazing that his career ups and downs have been second only to debut-mate-Ganguly.

I've been quite obvious that Dravid's one of my dear favorites. I too rate him over Sachin.

Thought he played very well today. Seemed set for a 100, didn't even make 50. That's classic Dravid in a way - will almost never make merry when all seems good yet grind his way to 50s, 80s and 100s in difficult conditions.

Cos u were the wall.. the words are ringing in my head.. someone pick a guitar up and hum this.. its a sure hit!

Naked Cricket said...

SB - that’s some complement man. I really need to implement man.

Naked Cricket said...

Cheers VM!
Even moe convinced, RD's the fittest of the four. Needs to sort the head and score big soon. Looking more chilled than he has in a long while.

Naked Cricket said...

Q - that's music to my ears!

I feel he fixes his batting... too much of a coincidence... him playing well when he is captain.
