Former India captain Rahul Dravid was on Thursday inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame at a brief function ahead of the fifth and final ODI between India and the West Indies.
Dravid, who remains to be one of the finest gentlemen of the game, was handed over the momento by former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.
Dravid became the fifth player from India to be named in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. He has joined the elite list that includes Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev, Gavaskar and Anil Kumble.
“It is a matter of great honour to be named by the ICC in the Cricket Hall of Fame. To find your name in a list of all-time greats across generations is something one only dreams of while setting out on a cricket career and the kind of recognition that would delight any player,” Dravid was quoted as saying in an ICC media release after the induction.
