    Another achievement for Dravid

    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    I thought it was going to something really impressive, like he'd broken the world goldfish-swallowing record or jelly juggling, but no.

    Oh well, I suppose we'll have to make do.

    All at a strike-rate of 12.

    Seriously, whatever Dravid's average is, he would be lucky to make the world's 2nd x1 for ODIs.

    While captain, Dravid's strike rate has been ~76. Compares favourably with most players. Still, don't let facts get in the way.

    Dravid would definitely make the world second XI for ODIs, but probably not the first, in my opinion. He's a good ODI player though, certainly better than he used to be.

    lol, it is a pretty good achievement. Of all the captains, he is the guy who you would least expect to top this particular chart.

    Well, I said captains. Not EX-captains.

    Wake me up when his team does anything meaningful.

    You can address me as Rumpelstiltskin.

    Dunno, like having a record for the last three series 6-1, 4-1 and 2-2 and the current series 4-0?
