Today sachin tendulkar paid rich tribute to THE WALL rahul dravid as "there was and is only one Rahul Dravid".and the latest news claim that tomorrow he is going to announce his retirement, and one more history starts. Is this the right time to announce his retirement ? at the age of 39 also he is playing good cricket.he fails in only one series and he is taking the failure on his shoulders and didn't give the chance to comment on his part. i think he taken right decision at the right time.long living rahul dravid.

In fact i think he should have retired 2 years before. I am big fan of Rahul for his dedication and sacrifices towards the team. During the last few seasons i could not help the feeling that rahul was dragging his careered for too long for his own detriment.He was at the same time spoiling the chances of a youngster. Its alays better to leave when one is on a high. People tend to member more

He is 39 years old ,how far can he play.Lot of young Indian batsman are ready for test cricket ,Rahul too replaced someone , its time that he is replaced by another young and talented cricketer.

I think he should play for more 1 year as he can do this. He is a back bone of Indian cricket team.

I think that Rahul Dravid made the right decision at the right time. It would have been worse if he had been dropped for bad form. I also wrote a blog about Rahul Dravid in March. He was a great player and won many matches and also saved many matches for India.

Just like you mentioned, Rahul Dravid only failed at one series against Australia and suddenly everyone started to write him off. Previous to the Australia tour, Dravid was the top scorer for India in both England and West Indies away series. He scored a number of centuries and averaged more than 60 in those two test series. I don't think it was the right for Rahul to announce his retirement as he was still playing good cricket.

I think it is right time to Rahul Dravid to retire, but my personal point of view, he should have played for another two years because one thing is that he is very fit and he also is a very good player. Most probably he would have helped the youngsters to groom in the team India. I think he should try to coach the young players and give them some good batting tips. I like Rahul Dravid because he is one of the classic player world had ever seen.
