Dravid to retire from ODIs and T20 after the England tour

Rahul dravid

Rahul Dravid announce his retirement from ODIs after the England tour after his surprise selection in the team.
 "I am honoured and privileged to be selected in the Indian one-day team," he said."Since I had not been picked for one-day cricket for the last two years, I was obviously a little surprised and to be honest, because I had not been picked, I had not informed the selectors or the board of my desire to solely focus on Test cricket. "At the end of this one-day series, I would like to announce my retirement from one-day and Twenty20 cricket and concentrate only on Test cricket. I am committed, as always to give my best to India in this one-day series and obviously the Test series that follows." He says these word after the practice match at Northampton.
It is likely to believe that Dravid has been selected in the team to give him a farewell or may be Rahul Dravid was waiting for a selection like this to quit from ODI and T20. Many of the fans may be disappointed by this decision made by Dravid but many may appreciate it. Well, 'The wall' was in need to be in team as he scored two back to back centuries in England.


  1. A perfect time for Dravid to get retire......BCCI given him that!

  2. yes dude he must have to do this, it is supposed to be slap on BBCI

  3. it's really a slap on BCCI who ignored such a great player

  4. we need dravid to win series for us....

  5. He should not retire!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He is the only man in the series for INDIA to play. Whole series was just Dravid vs england almost.

  6. @Kareem khan he did some what different from the other indian player but didn't save game for india.
    In recent odi matches he played poorly so it better he quitted. Anyway he will not going to get chances after this in odis that also let his retirement as good decision
