Steve Waugh believes that previous Indian wicketkeeper Rahul Dravid was one of the fabulous players he has played with. His importance in the Indian cricket team was almost the same as the legend Sachin Tendulkar. Dravid was also known as 'The Wall' of Indian cricket during his time. He amassed an incredible 13,288 Test runs in 164 games and 10,889 runs in 344 One Day Internationals for India.

Steve Waugh feels that Dravid was a key piece who held the entire Indian group together. He would consistently assist his team in surviving testing times by scoring runs at significant stages. Likewise, Waugh hailed the incredible batsman as a world-class player. He thinks that Dravid could hit any bowler on his day.

Steve Waugh praised Rahul Dravid and said that he was unflappable and his concentration level was extraordinary. He also thinks that it was impossible to break Dravid’s concentration. Steve said that he knew Dravid had the talent to score thousands of runs for India. Dravid is a player who could easily occupy the crease and could repulse quality bowling on his day.

Steve mentioned that on the off chance that Rahul had tried to play a little fast then he could play shots comparable to anybody. Dravid had been a top-class player and was very difficult to get him out just like Tendulkar.

Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar were the core of the Indian batting line-up

Further in the interaction, the 55-year-old marked Dravid's shocking knock of 180 runs against Australia during the 2000-01 Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Kolkata as one of his most tremendous innings. On that day, Dravid had dispatched an attack on the Australian group, driven by Steve Waugh. He had crushed his 10th Test century and first against Australia.

Steve concluded that Dravid had been very essential to the Indian side just like Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. He said that Dravid and Tendulkar were the core of India's batting line-up.
