"Playing for India is hard...when I was a boy, I had a dream and I don't have anything special for you. If you have a dream, a vision and drive, you can become better cricketers," Dravid, the 'Wall' of the Indian team, said while addressing aspiring cricketers at the inaugural of the trainingactivities of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bangalore.
Dravid told the youngsters that the training camp was a good opportunity and urged them to make best use of the 'chance'.
NCA president and batting legend Sunil Gavaskar said the youngsters had a fantastic opportunity to become 'better cricketers and human beings'. He said the youngsters were the future of Indian cricket.
About 42 players, split into two batches, are attending the 30-day camp organised by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in the city.
