“Captain, Opener, No.3, Wicket Keeper, ICC event winning coach, former NCA head, and now India coach. But above all, a great human being. Happy Birthday to the master of all trades. #HappyBirthdayRahulDravid,” tweeted Jaffer.

Notably, ahead of the start of the third Test, which began today in Cape Town, Dravid had a chat with broadcasters where he expressed that he received wishes from his friends and family
