Karriere

Sein Testdebüt für Indien feierte Rahul Dravid im Juni 1996 gegen England in London. Er war nach Sunil Gavaskar und Sachin Tendulkar der dritte indische Cricketspieler und der sechste Spieler weltweit, der mindestens 10000 Runs während seiner Testkarriere erzielte. Seinen 10000. Run erreichte er bei seinem 120. Test. Dieser wurde gegen Südafrika im März 2008 in Chennai gespielt.[3] Sein Debüt für das indische One-Day International Cricket Team feierte er gegen Sri Lanka am 3. April 1996 in Singapur.[1] Auch bei ODIs hat er die 10000 Runs Marke geknackt. Dies gelang ihm im Februar 2007 bei einem Match gegen Sri Lanka.[4] Damit ist er neben Jacques Kallis, Brian Lara, Ricky Ponting und Sachin Tendulkar einer von nur fünf Crcketspielern, die mindestens 10000 Runs bei Tests und bei ODIs erzielten. Für das indische Team nahm Dravid an drei Cricket Weltmeisterschaften teil (1999, 2003 und 2007). Beim World Cup 1999 war er mit 461 erzielten Runs der Topscorer des Turniers.[5]
