Dravid said he couldn't have finished a two-mile run like Shah Rukh Khan but was happy that the Bollywood actor was promoting sports not only at the elite level with the Indian Premier League but also at the grass root level.

Indian cricket great Rahul Dravid on Saturday said it was important to revive university cricket and thought using the T20 format was the best way to go about it.

"It is important that university cricket becomes popular and boys play. We have seen in the last 20 years, university cricket has died a bit. It has become dead. So to revive it, if T20 is needed then there is no problem," Dravid said.

"It is a good thing that boys would get an opportunity to play and cricket will revive. Then taking it forward, three-day four-day cricket can come also come. But you need to revive university cricket first," he said at the Toyota University Cricket Championship event.
