For a decade and a half in International cricket, Sachin and Dravid were two of the mainstays of India’s batting line-up and were certainly the nightmares for many bowlers. In fact, the two piled up 331 runs against Sri Lanka in 1999 World Cup and recorded the highest ODI partnership for any wicket and the record stood for 16 years before Marlon Samuels and Chris Gayle broke it in the 2015 World Cup.
Speaking of Rahul Dravid, the batting juggernaut bid adieu to international cricket in 2012 and gave relief to many bowling line-ups. However, he extended his contribution towards Indian cricket by donning the coach’s head. Under his guidance, India also lifted the Under-19 World Cup in 2018. Currently, he is working as the head of National Cricket Academy (NCA) and will seek to produce many more stars for Indian cricket.
