Dravid was named one of the best five cricketers of the year by Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack in 2000 and received the Player of the Year and the Test Player of the Year awards at the inaugural ICC awards ceremony in 2004.

In December 2011, he became the first non-Australian cricketer to deliver the Bradman Oration in Canberra.

As of January 2022, Dravid is the fourth-highest run scorer in Test cricket, after Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, and Jacques Kallis.

In 2004, after completing his century against Bangladesh in Chittagong, he became the first player to score a century in all the ten Test-playing countries.

As of October 2012, he holds the record for the most catches taken by a player in Test cricket, with 210. Dravid holds a unique record of never getting out for a Golden duck in the 286 Test innings which he has played.

He has faced 31258 balls, which is the highest number of balls faced by any player in test cricket.

He has also spent 44152 minutes at the crease, which is the highest time spent on the crease by any player in test cricket.

Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar are currently the highest scoring partnership in Test cricket history having scored 6920 runs combined when batting together for India.

In collaboration with GoSports Foundation, he is mentoring India’s future Olympians and Paralympians as part of the Rahul Dravid Athlete Mentorship Programme.

Indian badminton player Prannoy Kumar, Para-swimmer Sharath Gayakwad, and young Golfer S. Chikkarangappa were part of the initial group of athletes to be mentored by Rahul Dravid.

In July 2018, Dravid became the fifth Indian cricketer to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame.

Dravid, who had been knocking at the doors of the Indian national cricket team for quite a while with his consistent performance in domestic cricket, received his first national call in October 1994 for the last two matches of the Wills World Series.

However, he could not break into the playing eleven. He went back to the domestic circuit and kept knocking harder.

So much so that when the selectors announced the Indian team for the 1996 World Cup sans Dravid, an Indian daily newspaper carried a headline ‘Rahul Dravid gets a raw deal.

Dravid eventually made his international debut on 3 April 1996 in an ODI against Sri Lanka in the Singer Cup held in Singapore immediately after the 1996 World Cup, replacing Vinod Kambli.

He wasn’t particularly impressed with the bat, scoring just three runs before being dismissed by Muttiah Muralitharan, but took two catches in the match.

He followed it up with another failure in the next game scoring just four runs before getting run out against Pakistan. In contrast to his ODI debut, his Test debut was rather successful.

Dravid was selected for the Indian squad touring England on the backdrop of consistent performance in domestic cricket for five years.

Fine performances in the tour games including the fifties against Gloucestershire and Leicestershire failed to earn him a place in the team for the First Test.

He finally made his Test debut at Lord’s on 20 June 1996 against England in the Second Test of the series at the expense of injured senior batsman Sanjay Manjrekar.

Manjrekar, who was suffering from an ankle injury, was to undergo a fitness test on the morning of the Second Test.

Dravid had already been informed that he would play if Manjrekar fails the test.

As Manjrekar failed the fitness test, ten minutes before the toss, Sandeep Patil, the then Indian coach, went up to Dravid to inform him that he was indeed going to make his debut that day.
