The avidity to deliver, allegiance with fellow cricketers, astounding technique all manifests his calibre and the degree of spirit. Having nurtured by his parents properly, he slowly but steadily is marching towards the pinnacle.

Even when overshadowed by the lights of Tendulkar and Ganguly he still stands apart and has the talent to dictate his autonomy.
Whenever Cricketing India is in trouble, there will always be a person sailing the boat with no detours. He might not be the searchlight for the treasure hunt but he surely is the roadmap. The ease with which he conducts the flow of things, those slake elegant shots, slenderly appearance all refrains his endowments.

Be his patience, his arrogance or the gentleness everything is unique with him.
One can never forget the gleaming eyes after seeing a loose delivery, timorous gestures after receiving a bouncer and the ebullience to keep things under control. This lean man has sacrificed a lot for the welfare of his team. Even when, extra burdened with the task of wicketkeeping, he is good enough to deliver. He is heading towards his 88th consecutive test appearance today. The soul which suspires cricket, surely has to be acknowledged with gratitude.
