Rahul Dravid is a retired Indian international cricketer. He has scored centuries (scores of 100 runs or more) in both Test and One Day International (ODI) cricket in matches organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Nicknamed "The Wall" for his ability of "... fending off the fiercest, the fastest and the wiliest of bowlers around the world",[1][2] he has scored 36 centuries in Test cricket and 12 in One Day Internationals (ODI) since his debut in 1996.[3]

Dravid scored his first Test century in January 1997 against South Africa. In a man-of-the-match performance, he scored 148 in a nine-hour innings, taking India to their only draw of the series.[4] He made centuries in both innings of a match when he scored 190 and 103 not out in the third and final test of the 1998–99 series against New Zealand. He repeated the feat in March 2005 when he scored 110 and 135 against Pakistan in another man-of-the-match performance, leading India to victory in the second of the three-match series. Scoring 180 in a fifth-wicket partnership of 376 with VVS Laxman, in the Second Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2001, Dravid helped lead India to victory by 171 runs despite being asked to follow-on by the Australians.[5] His partnership with Laxman was the third-highest for the fifth wicket in cricket history.[6] Dravid's highest Test score of 270, achieved in April 2004 in Rawalpindi, helped India to an innings victory over Pakistan.[7] The performance was the fourth-highest score by an Indian batsman in Test cricket.[8] As of November 2009, Dravid has contributed to a record 79 100-run partnerships in Test cricket.[9] He has scored centuries against all of the other Test nations.

Dravid's debut ODI century was against Pakistan in 1997. Six ODI centuries followed in 1999, including two in the 1999 Cricket World Cup, against Kenya and Sri Lanka where he contributed 145 runs to a then-record 318-run partnership with Sourav Ganguly.[10] His highest score in ODI cricket is 153, made in November 1999 against New Zealand. His total came as part of a record second-wicket partnership of 331 with Sachin Tendulkar and led India to the second-highest ODI total at that time.[10][11][12] He was named as one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 2000,[13] as well as both ICC Test Player of the Year and ICC Player of the Year in 2004.[3]
