Indian skipper Rahul Dravid on Thursday praised batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar, who is set to break Wasim Akram's record of the highest number of ODI appearances at the Eden Gardens on Friday, saying it was a privilege to share the dressing room with the legend.

"It is a special occasion not only for Sachin, but for all of us in the team," Dravid told newspersons.

"It has been a privilege sharing the dressing room with him. He is a legend," he said.

Praising Tendulkar, Dravid said it was indeed a fantastic feat as the Mumbaikar had not only managed to play top flight cricket so long, but also attained huge success.

"We will all be behind him," he added.
