A true desi knows and adores cricket. But, not only do we take pride in following the sport but also in having crushes on the cricketers.
One such sportsperson is Rahul Dravid. He’s known for being super cool-headed and a total gentleman. And with good reason, just take a look at this video where the cricket star is refusing to say a word that he thought would be inappropriate at a press conference.
Recently Asli BCCI Women uploaded a video of Dravid talking about India’s and Pakistan’s bowling attack. In it, he seems to struggling to find a more respectful word to describe Pakistan’s bowling, and ultimately drops a hint by saying it’s a “Four letter word, starts with S.” How cute is this?
I am very confident that we have a very good bowling attack as well, you know? That produces results. Might not be as…I wanted to use a word, but I can’t use that word.
You can watch the clip here and see for yourselves.
Here is Rahul Dravid avoiding the use of the word ‘Sexy’ for Pak bowling attack 🙂 🙂 🙂pic.twitter.com/pT8PdXstZQ— Asli BCCI Women (@AsliBCCIWomen) September 4, 2022
And of course people had a lot of interesting things to say about the cricketer’s sweet reaction. Many people speculated multiple other words they thought he was trying to say as well.
This is the level of purity we all need in life ♥️ https://t.co/zdvn0VzTVQ— Rupin Kale (@Vegansportlover) September 4, 2022

Rahul Dravid during press conference wanted to utter word 'Sexy' but he avoided it and it was very enjoyable moment. Humility at its best. Whattay a player, coach and overall very good Human Being. India team is very fortunate enough to have coach like this.— Farrago Abdullah (@abdullah_0mar) September 4, 2022

💕 Rahul Dravid, even when not saying it, identifies the right word for the Pakistan bowling attack: sexy. That’s what Pak bowling has been for so long since our childhood. It’s the same word I’d use for Indian batting over many years. https://t.co/9umaQbPM5s— Waqqas Mir (@wamwordoflaw) September 4, 2022
Clearly, it was very thoughtful of him to think twice before saying the word! Just goes to show what a gentle soul he is!
