New Delhi: U-19 Coach, Former Team India captain and one of the greatest batsman to ever play the game, Rahul Dravid, was inducted into the International Cricket Council’s Hall of Fame. He was inducted along with another batting legend of the men’s game and former Australia captain Ricky Ponting and recently retired England women’s wicketkeeper, Claire Taylor.

Dravid is only the fifth player from India to be in this coveted list. Dravid scored 13,288 runs in 164 tests with 36 centuries and 10,889 runs in 344 ODIs with 12 centuries. Former Indian skippers Bishan Singh Bedi, and Kapil Dev were inducted in the ICC Hall of Fame in 2009, while Anil Kumble was included in 2015.

“It is a matter of great honour to be named by the ICC in the Cricket Hall of Fame. To find your name in a list of all-time greats across generations is something one only dreams of while setting out on a cricket career and the kind of recognition that would delight any player,” Dravid said.

“I am thankful to my near and dear ones as well as players I have played with and against, coaches and officials who have backed me over the years and helped me develop as a cricketer.

“I would also like to thank the KSCA and the BCCI for all the support over the years and the ICC for recognizing my achievements and picking me in this group of Hall of Fame inductees,” said Dravid, who scored a whopping 13,288 runs in 164 Tests with 36 centuries and 10,889 runs in 344 ODIs with 12 centuries.

Dracid holds the record for facing the highest number of balls and spending the most time at the crease than any other player in Test cricket history. In his 16-year Test cricket career, he faced 31,258 deliveries during his Test Career, spending 44,152 Minutes or 736 hours in the crease. Tendulkar follows Dravid with the most balls faced with 29,437. There is a reason why he’s called ‘The Wall’.
