Rahul Dravid impresses in his last ODI appearance
Indian batter Rahul Dravid has retired from the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) in style, with those lucky enough to have ODIs tickets able to watch his last performance in Wales.
The 38-year-old finished at 118th position in the International Cricket Council's Player Rankings, but his position being this low down is mostly because he did not participate in the ODIs in 2009 and 2010.
Dravid's final outing against the world's number-one bowler Graeme Swann occurred at a match against England in Cardiff, where he scored 69 out of 79 deliveries.
After Swann dismissed the batter, he received an ovation from the crowd and the English players stopped to shake his hand.
On the five match series against England, Dravid scored 128 runs, while he has clocked up 10,889 runs over the 344 ODIs he has entered.
This includes 12 centuries and 83 half-centuries and places him as the player with the seventh highest number of runs under his belt in ODI history.
