It would be pretty surprising if you see Rahul Dravid being the top trend on Twitter early in the morning. Well when the former India skipper’s name pops up, the only memory we re-collect is of him frustrating the bowlers with his unbreakable defense.

On Monday, Dravid’s name was all around Twitter because the International Cricket Council (ICC) made a tweet.

The fans were quick enough to answer that they would choose Rahul Dravid.

Dravid has been an integral cog in the Indian team. He was one of those players who never shy away from taking up the responsibility. The right-handed batsman scored a gutsy 96 against England on his Test debut and then there was no looking back.

He scored five double tons in Test cricket with 270 being his best score that came against arch-rivals Pakistan in Rawalpindi. Dravid also led India in the World Cup 2007 but had a forgettable outing then as the team was knocked out from the group stages after losing to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The only win came against Bermuda. Dravid along with Virender Sehwag put a partnership of 410 runs in one innings against Pakistan. He scored a total of 36 hundreds in Test cricket.
