When poor form ruled Dravid out

Rajneesh Gupta | October 17, 2007

Rahul Dravid's [Images] poor run of form cost him his place in the team for the seventh and final One-Day International against Australia in Mumbai on Wednesday.

The ex-captain scored just 51 runs from the five innings he played in the series, quite easily his worst run ever.

We take a look at the number of instances when he was dropped because of poor form:
