Rahul is all time great:

Finally, he has got what he deserved.Rahul has been declared as the best Indian Test cricketer by Holding Willey report.This report was prepared with deep study of the player's contribution to his team, match winning efforts, performance away from home etc.
No wonder, Rahul has to be the greatest of all!
The findings of the report were based on solid facts such as his average: 52 in 131 Tests overall but a better away average; 57. He averages 66 in Tests won by India, 78 in Tests won abroad. Also his five Man-of-the-Match awards are in matches won by India abroad. Further his failure rate is 43% (of his 227 innings) which is the lowest amongst batsmen in the Report. Even though he prefers to come 1 or 2 down, he holds a record of 409 opening partnership (with Sehwag).

The HoldingWilley Report’s All-Time Top 20 Indian Test Players:
6.Bedi-Chandrasekhar-Prasanna (as one unit)
7. Vishwanath
8. Kumble
9. Mankad
10. Laxman
11. Ganguly
12. Azharuddin
13. Vengsarkar
14. Amarnath
15. Hazare
16. Gupte
17. Umrigar
18. Srinath

Personally, I think that Srinath and Amarnath deserve to be above Ganguly (no offence towards Dada).Srinath has served Indian team for so long that he doesn't fit at 18th spot.
Anyways, it's really good news to all Rahul Dravid fans.Considering the fuss going on about his retirement, this news should bring some sort of relief for Rahul as well as all of us!
