ICC Commits A Massive Blunder, Calls Rahul Dravid A “Left-Handed” Batsman
Of late, the International cricket council was at the receiving end for quite a few scenarios in the game of cricket. However, in the latest, they were criticised again for their lack of knowledge of a few legendary cricketers of the game. Rahul Dravid, who recently became the 5th Indian to be inducted in the ICC hall of fame labelled Rahul Dravid as the left-handed batsman.
Rahul Dravid became the fifth Indian to be inducted in the Hall of Fame:
Hailed as one of the greatest-ever batsmen to represent India at the international level – Rahul Dravid’s name in the heart of every cricket lover holds a special place. Fans couldn’t take the mistake done to a legendary person of the game, who has always been hailed as the Gentleman of the game.
Dravid, last year, became the fifth Indian to be inducted in the Hall of Fame along with Australia legend Ricky Ponting and England women’s stalwart Claire Taylor during the ICC Annual Conference in Dublin in July. But ICC forgot to properly check their website page as it lists the Indian batting legend as a left-handed batsman.
From orchestrating some of India’s historic wins to helping the team achieve greater heights at the global level – Dravid was widely appreciated as the true servant of the game, who maintained the fabric of the sport at all costs.
Dravid became only the fifth player from India to be named in the elite list. The other four Indians are former skippers Bishan Singh Bedi, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Anil Kumble. Ponting is the 25th from Australia to receive the honour.
For the same, Dravid had received his commemorative cap from fellow ICC Hall of Famer Sunil Gavaskar before the start of the fifth and final ODI between India and the West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram.
