Rahul Dravid was on Thursday facilitated by the BCCI for being officially inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame earlier this year, on the sidelines of the fifth ODI between India and West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram.

Sunil Gavaskar, the first Indian to be inducted into the ICC’s Hall of Fame in 2009, presented Dravid an official memento on behalf of the BCCI before the start of the match.

Dravid had on July 1 been inducted during a ceremony in Dublin. The honour is bestowed upon the greatest names to have graced the sport. Dravid was the fifth cricketer from India to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, after Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Bishan Sing Bedi in 2009 and Anil Kumble in 2015.

Dravid was named ICC Cricketer of the Year and ICC Test Player of the Year in 2004, and has a world record 210 Test catches. He also has 13,288 Test runs — the fourth-most in history — while his 10,889 ODI runs put him at ninth spot.
