5 bowlers whose first Test wicket was Rahul Dravid
Interestingly, Dravid was out to rookie spinners on quite a few occasions.
No matter how many wickets any bowler takes, his first wicket always remains more precious than the others. It is etched in his memory for a long time and keeps reminding him of the time when he was taking baby steps in international cricket and how the wicket just improved his confidence.
In this particular segment, let us take a look at five bowlers whose first ever Test wicket was the legendary Indian batsman Rahul Dravid.
#5 Mohammad Rafique
The 10th of March 2000 will go down as an unforgettable day in the history of Bangladesh cricket. It was on this day that they played their first Test match against India at the Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka.
The hosts' spin attack was led by the experienced Mohammad Rafique. During the fourth delivery of the 48th over, the wily left-armer got one to slide in and take the inside-edge of Dravid's bat. Al Sahariar, at short-leg, took an easy catch.
It was the left-arm spinner's first ever Test wicket and one which he would never forget.
