Does Dravid’s father think his son’s performances are overshadowed by Tendulkar’s?

Rahul Dravid's Father thinks his son's performances have been overshadowed by Tendulkar's

Rahul Dravid’s father while giving an interview to a sports channel felt his son had made the right decision to retire from ODIs and concentrate on Test cricket. He felt it was right for him to say goodbye to the shorter format of the game for he was not always included in the squad. He said that sometimes Rahul is picked and sometimes dropped which creates frustration for a great player and it was in his best interest that he focused on Tests. When asked whether he felt that his son’s achievements were overshadowed by Tendulkar’s performances, Dravid senior thoughtfully replied that ‘you could say so’, ‘that is life’. He said that some of his son’s performances were extra ordinary, sometimes better than everyoneelse’s but at times they were not given the due recognition that they deserved but that was part of life.

Indian fans have been generally known to undermine the likes of Dravid and Ganguly when talking about Sachin Tendulkar. However, Dravid is one of the greatest consistent batsmen of his times and can be compared to the likes of Ponting, Inzamam and Kalis.
