Dravid being humble
India's Rahul Dravid insisted he was "not in the same league" as compatriot Sunil Gavaskar after joining the former opener on 34 Test hundreds.
Dravid, in a masterclass of both concentration and stylish shot-making, made 117 against a powerful England attack to help propel India into a first innings lead at Trent Bridge on Saturday.
Nicknamed 'The Wall' for his immense powers of application, Dravid batted for over six hours before uppercutting seamer Tim Bresnan straight to Alastair Cook.
"It's great to share something with the legend, though I don't compare myself with Mr Gavaskar," Dravid told reporters after stumps. "I think he is an absolute legend of the game.
"I grew up as a kid in a generation when Gavaskar and [Gundappa] Viswanath were big heroes for us and in all my games of backyard cricket I would be either a Gavaskar or a Viswanath," explained the Bangalore-born 38-year-old.
"So for me to equal something that he has done is truly fantastic."
