BIO: Rahul Dravid , born Rahul Sharad Dravid on 11 January 1973 to a Maratha family in Bangalore, is a former captain of the Indian Test and One Day International (ODI) teams. Popularly and formidably hailed as ‘The Wall’, Dravid is regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in cricketing history. His progress in to the national level has been a steady and methodical climb than a meteoric rise to the crème of the cricketing macrocosm. But once there, he wasted no time to prove his mettle and plant himself firmly at the vanguard of a new generation of players no longer weighed down by tradition but who brought their own idiosyncratic twist to the game. With an astounding record of over 13,000 runs in Test Cricket and 10,000 runs in ODI cricket, Rahul Dravid  become the first and only batsman to score a century in all 10 Test playing nations. He also holds the world record for the most number of catches in Test cricket. He was awarded the ICC player of the year and the Test player of the year at the inaugural awards ceremony held in 2004. Though he announced his retirement from both International and First Class Cricket in early 2012, he led the Rajasthan Royals in the 2012 and 2013  editions of the Indian Premier League.
