Indian Cricket Legend Rahul Dravid recently met current head coach Ravi Shastri during a practice session ahead of India's third T20I against South Africa to be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday. BCCI shared a picture of the two and tweeted "When two greats of Indian Cricket meet" but was brutally trolled for this tweet.

People across the social media didn't like that BCCI put Dravid and Shastri in the same league. A user replied, "Only one hero my hero #TheWall #Legend #Dravid don't compare him with anybody,".
Another user wrote in a sarcastic manner, "Two greats- Rahul & Dravid".

The idea of BCCI to put the two men in the same league didn't go down well with the fans over social media and fans didn't waste any time in trolling BCCI.
If we look at the career of both the players Dravid scored 13288 runs in Tests and 10889 runs in ODIs while Ravi Shastri managed just 3830 runs in Tests and 3180 runs in ODIs. On the other hand, Rahul Dravid has been inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame and is widely respected all round the world for his credentials.
