Rajasthan Royals reached 177 for six in their allotted 20 overs against Kings XI Punjab in their IPL 2012 match at Chandigarh on Saturday.
Dravid was ably complimented by Shane Watson, Ashok Menaria and Brad Hodge.
Electing to bat after winning the toss, Rajasthan got off to a wobbly start losing Orange Cap holder Ajinkya Rahane in the second over of the match.
Dravid and Watson then got down to stabilising the innings for the visitors adding 76 runs for the second wicket before Piyush Chawla had the Australian caught by Ryan Harris.
Menaria then joined forces with Dravid as the duo took the attack to the opposition.
But just when the visitors looked set for a big score, Dravid perished playing a shot too many.
Hodge smashed a quickfire 36 to help Rajasthan to a competitive score.
Brief Scores: RR 177 for 6 in 20 overs(Rahul Dravid 46, Shane Watson 36; Ryan Harris 4 for 34, Piyush Chawla 2 for 38) vs KXIP
