I am a Dravid fan yet I disagree with his decision. I remember watching that series & going WTF.
It was only 6 runs so Dravid should've given him little more time & moreover if msg was passed on to him then Tendulkar would've scored those runs quickly.
It's good he set an example by choosing team over individual record but in this case it was only 6 runs unlike Javed Miandad being 20 runs behind. You can see the pressure of Ind vs Pak Match having it's impact on Imran Khan. It was the same for Dravid too.
Chalta hai. Despite this, the two legends remained closer & continued contribute to cricket. Ultimately cricket won.
