Team India lead trainer Rahul Dravid, normally known as ‘The Wall’, is eminent for enduring the hardship and guiding his team to not let any stones left unturned. As the previous Indian captain commends his 50th birthday celebration on Wednesday, we should view a portion of some of his best shots.
When one contemplates Dravid’s most noteworthy thumps, it is difficult to go past his 180-run innings against Australia at the Eden Nurseries in 2001. This is as yet seen as perhaps the grittiest knock in the game.
Australia was controlling everything for most of the game and the match was a must-win for India in the wake of losing the first Test. India was bowled out for 171, the Indian openers were excused in the subsequent innings, and it was then that Dravid and VVS Laxman acted the hero. No one anticipated that the two would proceed to create a “marvel” for the group. The two players proceeded to score 376 runs in succession. Laxman and Dravid destroyed Australia’s bowling assault, including Shane Warne and Glenn Mcgrath.
Another knock is his 270-run innings against Pakistan in 2004. The three-match series was evened out at 1-1 and there was strain on the Indian side to enroll their most memorable Test series win in Pakistan. Dravid is the main player to be associated with two 300 or more ODI associations. He has played 164 Tests, 344 ODIs, and one T20I for India. The Wall at long last reported his retirement from worldwide cricket in Walk 2012. He completed his vocation with 48 global hundreds of years. Dravid assumed control over the lead trainer’s job of Group India in November 2021.
