Rahul Dravid was a former teammate of the Indian cricket team. In 2000, the Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack selected him as one of the top five cricketers of the year. He almost holds the record for most saves by a non-wicket-keeper in international cricket since October 2012. Betting on cricket players like this must be very profitable.
Dravid is the fourth-highest run-scorer in international cricket, behind Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, and Jacques Kallis. He gave the Bradman Oration in Canberra for the first time in December 2011, making him the first non-Australian player to do so.
Dravid was a great batsman for the national cricket team and was known for his style. Dravid is also considered a conservative batsman who should only be allowed to play Test cricket. With a total of 52.31, he scored 36 centuries in international cricket. Dravid’s top score in overseas competitions is 55.53 and 50.76 at home. His ODI record in overseas competitions is 37.93. David’s nickname in the Reebok commercials is’ The Wall’. In Tests and One Day Internationals, he had the highest scores of 153 and 270.
In matches and in One Day Internationals, the batsman will be only the second Indian cricketer to reach 10,000 runs. At the inaugural ICC Awards presentation in 2004, he was named Player of the Year as well as Cricketer of the Year. He may be the first player to score a century in each of the 10 countries that play Test match cricket.
At the National Institute of Cricket in Bengaluru, Rahul Sharad Dravid is the Director of Cricket Management. The former India batsman is considered one of the finest batsmen in the game. He scored 24,177 runs during international cricket for India.
Sharad Rahul Dravid is still a former captain of the Indian Premier League and a professional cricketer. In 2019, he became the Chief Executive Officer of the National Cricket Authority (NCA). Mr. Dependable seems to be the nickname given to him by Indian cricket lovers because of his excellent playing style. Dravid has now been named as the new director of the NCA till 2019. He became India’s Under-19 and India’s senior coach. Dravid started playing cricket at the age of 12 and has since represented Karnataka at the Under-15, Under-17, and Under-19 levels.
In March 2012, Rahul Dravid announced his retirement from first-class and world cricket. In July 2018, he was nominated for the ICC Hall of Fame. He became chairman of the board of advisors for the GoSports Foundation in 2014. Prospective Olympians and Paralympians from India are mentored by the organization. Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan were also awarded to the famous Indian batsman.
In 2004, Dravid was convicted of ball-tampering. The appointment of an active sweet was termed a deliberate foul by match officer Clive Lloyd. Indian coach John Wright defended Dravid.
When it comes to leading India in Tests, Rahul Dravid’s record seems to be mixed. Ravi Shastri followed him again by not selecting a balanced lineup for the 2008 IPL season. Questions are also being raised about the decision-making method of the former India coach.
In 2004, Dravid made a conscious decision to bowl out India’s first innings total, while Sachin Tendulkar was never dismissed for 194. Former India captain Ravi Shastri had slammed Rahul for allowing Greg Chappell to take too many decisions.
