Rahul Dravid is a former Indian cricketer, who captained the national Test and One Day International (ODI) cricket teams. He started playing cricket at the age of 12 and later represented the state team at the under-15, under-17 and under-19 levels.

 

Popularly nicknamed “The Wall”, Rahul Dravid has been described as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket. He was named one of the best five cricketers of the year by Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack in 2000 and received the Player of the Year and the Test Player of the Year awards at the inaugural ICC awards ceremony in 2004.
