The unbelievable fact of cricket- Rahul Dravid’s three sixes in T20I

Rahul Dravid, one of his generation’s most underestimated white-ball cricketers, is not quite remembered for his limited-over glory. While one of the five Indian cricketers to score more than 10000 runs in ODIs, Dravid is mostly hailed for his Test cricket career. Throughout his distinguished career, Dravid has played 344 ODIs and 164 Tests. Also, he played one international T20 innings.

Holding a surprise call-up for the white-ball series against England in 2011, Dravid played his first and only T20I in Manchester, where he smashed Samit Patel in the 11th over to stun the cricket fraternity for three consecutive sixes.

Dravid played patiently at the start and batted from 16 balls on 13 before deciding to go for big shots-on the final three 11th over deliveries. To score his first six in T20 innings, he smashed the spinner towards midwicket first. On the fifth ball, Dravid came down the wicket and cleared the boundary long-on. He targeted the mid-wicket area again and smashed six more to complete a hat-trick of six. He was dismissed the next time Eoin Morgan caught him by Ravi Bopara.

Famer Dravid’s ICC Hall ended his T20I career with 31 runs that came at a 147.61 strike rate. He played 5 final ODIs of his career shortly after the one-off T20I, where he scored 124 runs. Dravid finished his ODI career at 39.16, with 10889 runs.

Although Team India failed to win a single tour game, Dravid had a memorable Test series run. He finished in four tests with 461 runs, scoring in eight innings for three centuries, while India lost all four matches. In March 2012, he retired from international cricket.

Until retiring from professional cricket in 2013, the Indian legend continued to play IPL. In 2015 he was named coach of India A and U-19 team. The U-19 team has finished in the World Cup as the runner-up in 2016 and won the 2018 World Cup under his coaching. He is currently National Cricket Academy Director.
