Rahul Dravid celebrated his 45th birthday with the India U-19 squad in New Zealand. The teenagers rubbed a cake on the head coach’s face and later took selfies with him. Under his guidance, India had reached the final in the 2016 edition.

There are a lot of firsts that Dravid achieved as an India captain: Dravid is the first Indian captain to win a Test in Pakistan, the first Indian captain to win a Test in South Africa, the first Indian captain to win a series in England in 21 years, and the first Asian captain to win a series in West Indies in 35 years.

With 13,288 runs, Dravid is the second-highest run-scorer for India in Tests. In all he has over 24,000 runs in international cricket, including 48 hundreds and 146 half-centuries.
