Rahul Dravid inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame

Top Story

Former India captain Rahul Dravid was today formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.

To mark the occasion, Dravid received his commemorative cap from fellow ICC Cricket Hall of Famer Sunil Gavaskar before the start of the fifth and final ODI between India and the West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram.

Dravid was named in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame along with Australia men’s legend Ricky Ponting and England women’s stalwart Claire Taylor during the ICC Annual Conference in Dublin in July. However, like Ponting, Dravid was unable to attend the induction ceremony due to a coaching assignment with the India ‘A’ side.

Dravid, after receiving the cap, said: “I am honoured and delighted to have been formally inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in front of my home fans. This award gives me the satisfaction that I have been able to contribute to the success of the India cricket team in particular, and cricket in general.

“I am grateful to all my contemporaries, who helped and supported me during my playing days, as well as coaches and officials who guided me on the long journey. I have enjoyed each and every moment of my association with them, as together we not only set big targets but achieved most of them.”
