It might be surprising for most people to hear the odd superstitious habits of Rahul Dravid, one of the most technically sound batsmen of his era that comprised of several greats. The former Indian captain has the practice of putting his right thigh pad first.

However, the extreme superstitious side of Dravid was revealed by his wife once in an interview, "Last year before the Lord's Test, he (Rahul Dravid) made sure to sit in the same space Tillakaratne Dilshan had occupied in the visitors' dressing room when he scored nearly a double-hundred earlier in the season.
