Rahul Dravid declines honorary doctorate

In a display of his unshakable integrity and character, former cricketer Rahul Dravid – The Wall – has declined to accept an honorary conferred on him by Bangalore University, saying that he would ‘like to earn the doctorate by completing a research in the field of sports.’

The University, in a press release, said that the under-19 coach had “in all humility declined to accept the degree”.

“He (Dravid) has conveyed that he would try to earn a doctorate degree by accomplishing some form of academic research in the field of sports rather than receiving an honorary degree,” the release said.
