New Delhi, July 25 - Former India captain and current Under-19 team coach Rahul Dravid picked batting great Sachin Tendulkar to bat for his life in a video interview recently.

"The best guy I've played with was Sachin Tendulkar. In terms of quality and class. So I'd pick Sachin, at his best," Dravid answered during a video interview with espncricinfo.

India's 'Wall' in the longest format of the game for more than a decade, Dravid's name often comes to mind when the question of picking a "batsman to bat for your life" pops up.

But the 45-year-old who has 13,288 runs in 164 Tests for India chose long time teammate and former India captain Tendulkar.

The recent ICC Hall of Fame inductee, who coached the India U-19 team to a World Cup title earlier this year, was also asked about the funniest sledge he ever received.

He picked one delivered by the Australian fielders as he walked out to the crease to join V.V.S.Laxman while following on in the famous 2001 Eden Gardens Test.
