But, by the end of the day, it turned out to be an anti-climax, if not a farce.
Dravid, addressing the media, said that the recall had taken him by total surprise. “I was not considered for one-dayers for two years. So, I was not expecting this. This has come as a surprise. I am honoured and privileged to be chosen,” he said, politically correct as always.
He went on to add that he would do his best under the circumstances but his body language suggested that there was more to it. Maybe, he wasn’t up to it. In fact, he showed the BCCI and its selectors in a totally poor and unprofessional light by saying that this would be his last one-day series.
