There can be only one wall, says Rahane
India batsman Ajinkya Rahane on Friday thanked former captain Rahul Dravid for the encomiums
showered on him on Thursday, but insisted he cannot be compared to "The Wall."
"It is a big compliment coming from Rahul <g data-gr-id="28">bhai</g>. It gives me motivation and inspiration to do well and work harder. For <g data-gr-id="27">me</g> the process is important, not the result. Over the last two years I have been doing that," said Rahane at a promotional event for his IPL team Rajasthan Royals here on Friday."I feel that Rahane has been the most successful Indian Test batsman in the last one year. We played four overseas tours in the last one year and his performance was very good in all these four tours," Dravid said here on Thursday.
"Some players performed in one or two <g data-gr-id="20">series</g> but Rahane was one player, who performed well in all the four series," the Rajasthan Royals 'Mentor' said of Rahane, who scored Test centuries in New Zealand, England and Australia.
"There is always one wall, and there will always be one. I don't think I can take his place, but there is only one wall in India and that is Rahul Dravid," <g data-gr-id="22">Rahane</g> said on being compared to Dravid for his solidity in batting.
