Rahul Dravid in figures

March 17, 2006 22:13 IST
Rahul Dravid will become the sixth Indian player and 37th player in the world to appear in 100 Test matches when he steps on the ground in the Mumbai Test on Saturday.

It must however be noted that one of Dravid's Test was for ICC World XI against Australia in Super 'Test' which was controversially given Test status by the ICC. So technically, Dravid is still one short of completing his century of Tests for India.

This is how all Indians - members of this exclusive club - stood before their 100th Tests. Clearly Dravid enjoys a higher run-aggregate and batting average than all others, though Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar were way ahead in terms of centuries.

Player Runs Inns NO HS Ave 100s 50s 0s
R Dravid 8492 167 21 270 58.16 22 41 6
SM Gavaskar 8394 174 14 236* 52.46 30 36 10
SR Tendulkar 8351 159 15 217 57.99 30 33 10

Kapil Dev 4087 143 12 163 31.20 6 21 12
Anil Kumble had a tally of 1,687 runs (ave 16.87) and 478 wickets (ave.28.03) after exactly 99 Tests. Kapil Dev had also taken 347 wickets (ave.29.02) before his 100th Test.
