Former India opener Aakash Chopra stressed on Dravid being a team man.
"Happy Birthday to Rahul 'The Team Man' Dravid. Always put 'Team before self' They don't make it like him anymore... #selfless #legend," Chopra tweeted.
Sharing a compilation of his pictures with Dravid, Mohammad Kaif posted: "Happy Birthday #RahulDravid. One of the most selfless, likeable human being ever and the biggest reason to love the name 'Rahul'."
Dravid is the fourth highest run-getter in Test cricket with 13,288 runs from 164 matches, just a run behind South African Jacques Kallis (13,289), Australian Rickey Ponting (13,378) and Tendulkar (15,921).
In 344 ODIs, the legendary right-hander and current junior India team coach amassed 10,889 runs while scoring 31 runs in his only T20 International game.
