Happy Birthday Rahul Dravid "The Wall" 


Let us look at his top test innings

Rahul Dravid lived up to his nickname, The Wall, as he scored plenty of runs whenever India were in trouble.

One of the best knock from Dravid. He opened the innings and stayed unbeaten until the end of the innings with an unbeaten 146 run knock.
