Rahul Dravid, the man who redefined Indian Cricket over the last two decades has decided to quit International Cricket. He announced his retirement  on 9th March 2012 at his home ground Chinnasamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Dravid was one of the finest cricketer India has ever produced and easily 'The Best No.3' India ever had.  'When the going gets Tough - The Tough gets Going' This has been the mantra for Dravid throughout his career. He has pulled India out of difficult situations on many occasions by his class batting . He along with Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly constituted the most fearsome batting lineup of all times which was famously called as the 'Fab Four'. Dravid's contribution to Indian Cricket was impeccable over the last 20 years. He is one of the very few batsman who managed to score runs at will in all parts of the world. Dravid was also one of the few batsman who had scored 10000+ runs in both forms of the cricket.
