Will Sachin, Dravid ever be caught doing this?

Seeing pictures of former world chess champion Garry Kasparov being arrested in Moscow yesterday, while protesting against the oppressive measures of the Vladimir Putin government, a simple question comes to mind: can we trust our cricket or hockey stars, our golf, billiard, snooker or tennis greats—or even our chess champ—if, touch wood, we were to land in a similar mess and our freedom were in danger? Should we expect them to? Or is ambitious Kasparov on the streets only because he is eyeing a future in politics?
