Ronjan Sodhi feels Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble should have been awarded the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna

If we talk about India’s best test team ever, two players that will certainly be a part of it are Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid.

Such was their era when everyone feared team India in tests, we had the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, and Dravid in the batting line up along with Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, and Anil Kumble in the bowling line up.

Kumble’s greatness:

Anil Kumble was known for his tremendous leg-spin which deceived most of the batsman of his era. He took 600+ wickets in his test cricket career and was also the captain of India in the 2007 to 2009 era when India reached the number 1 test ranking.

He is to date the only bowler to dismiss all 10 batsmen in winnings. He achieved this unbelievable milestone against Pakistan at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi. He was a true legend and a very down to earth man and will always be remembered for his contributions to Indian cricket.

Dravid’s class:

Rahul Dravid was popularly known as ‘the wall’ in the cricketing world. His skills were so solid that everyone in modern-day cricket needs to learn from him and how to bat in extremely unfavorable situations.

He frustrated the opposition with his slow strike rate and played classical shots, which were an absolute joy to watch. He was a rock-solid asset for the Indian team on the 3rd number and will always be admired as one of the best Indian batsmen.

Recently Indian double trap shooter Ronjan Sodhi was among the 5 recipients of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award.

In an interaction with famous magazine sportskeeda, he said that Anil Kumble and Rahul Dravid contributed tremendously towards Indian cricket and should have received the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award during their era.
