proficiency & stylish strokes. His strokes are so perfect technically that he is considered as
the "wall" of the Indian Team. His batting style was regarded slow for the ODIís initially but with
his imaginative placing of the ball & innovative strokes he made himself as an integral part of
the Indian team for both Tests as well as ODIís. His temperament for both the versions of the
game is exemplary and has earned him respect from all the other players. The Indian Vice
Captain has frequently played the sheet anchor role to perfection. . He was verily the batsman
of the 1999 World Cup with two hundreds and the highest aggregate. For this, he was named
as Wisden cricketer of the year, one of the few Indians to receive this special accolade. His
good and innocent looks make him very popular among the girls.

average of over 50. His temparament is exemplary and his concentration
legendary. A batsman who revels in a crisis, Dravid, against New Zealand
in January 1999, joined the ranks of Vijay Hazare and Sunil Gavaskar as
one of only three Indians to have scored a century in each innings in a
Test. The poor run in Australia in 1999-2000 was only a passing phase and
he returned to top form the next season, including notching up his first
double century in Tests. His promotion as vice captain was widely acclaimed.

well behaved Dravid is one of the most popular and instantly recognizable
