Rahul Dravid remembers the day when he stood tall amid English storm

Former Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid was one of the most consistent in the batting line up. For his ability to bail the team out in crisis and rescue Indian innings earned him ‘the wall’. He has scored in almost every part of the world and has numerous records to his name.

Dravid is inarguably one of the greats to have played the gentlemen’s game of cricket. Many a times, a cricketer is seen rekindling memories of his golden days after his playing days are over. Dravid on this occasion, remembered his scintillating knock of an unbeaten 146 runs at Kennington Oval against England in the fourth Test of the Pataudi Trophy in 2011.

Dravid opened the Indian innings and remained unconquered for 146 on w pitch where wickets keep tumbling like nine pins. England posted a massive total of 591 runs in their first innings to which Indian innings stumbled for 300.

Dravid played with immense confidence and confronted the English attack with buoyancy. He had some partnerships with every batsman in the line up and batted with everyone. It’s an incredible record to have which also speaks of Dravid’s elegance.

He posted a picture of the partnership table on his Instagram handle and wrote, “Fells Happy when ever i look back my records.”

He is currently the coach of India Under-19 side and has done a good job in his new role as his team made it to the finals of the Under-19 World Cup but lost the game to West Indies.
