Former Pakistan fast bowler Wahab Riaz has given a big statement regarding the head coach of the Indian team, Rahul Dravid.
He recently compared Dravid to Inzamam while giving an interview to Cricbuzz. He believes that former Pakistan captain Inzamam is better than Rahul Dravid.
Wahab Riaz compares Rahul Dravid with former Pakistan captain –
In fact, Team India’s head coach Rahul Dravid is considered one of the best batsmen in the history of the game. Dravid has been an integral part of the Indian team throughout his career. He has represented the team in 164 Tests and 344 ODIs.
Let us tell you that Dravid also captained the team between 2005-2007 with an international career of 16 years.
But recently Wahab Riaz, the former fast bowler of the Pakistan cricket team, has given a strange statement about Rahul Dravid. In fact, in an interview with Cricbuzz, Wahab was asked who is the better batsman between Inzamam and Rahul Dravid.
So answering this, Wahab chose former Pakistan captain Inzamam, in which he further said about his decision that Inzamam performed brilliantly in both the formats of the game. Wahab said
“Inzi Bhai has done exceptionally well across formats. He had plenty of time to play his shots against the fast bowlers. Rahul Dravid is nothing in front of Eng Bhai.”
