Rajneesh Gupta | September 15, 2007

The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Friday made a shocking announcement that Rahul Dravid [Images] had asked to be relieved of the team's captaincy as he wants to concentrate on his batting.

It brings to an abrupt end the Karnataka batsman's two-year stint at the top after replacing Sourav Ganguly [Images].
