Rahul Dravid‘s long and glorious career is at a serious crossroads. For long, India’s most dependable batsman and indeed its most productive, “The Wall” has begun to wobble dangerously even on home turf. Although the fittest of the so-called Fab Five (Sachin Tendulkar, Saurav Ganguly, Anil Kumble, V.V.S. Laxman being the other four), tongues have begun to wag that Dravid may have completely run out of steam and motivation after chucking the captaincy. And an enviable Test average of 58 is now plunging downwards.
Should Dravid retire before the whispers reach a crescendo?
