Player Bio

A classical batsman with an outstanding defence, Rahul Dravid is one of India’s greatest-ever Test batsmen and among the all-time greats at No.3 in Test cricket. His 13,288 runs place him at No.4 on the list of most prolific run-scorers in Test cricket, and he played key roles in some of India’s greatest Test wins in the 2000s, most memorably in Adelaide in 2003 when he scored 233 and 72 not out. Though not a natural in the shorter formats, Dravid still adapted his game well enough to score 10,889 runs in one-day internationals, an incredible achievement. As captain, too, Dravid shone bright in the limited opportunities he got, leading India to rare Test series wins in the Caribbean (2006) and in England (2007).
