A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news from http://www.cricketworld.com. Find us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/cricketworld and Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/cricket_world as we look at the career of Indian batsman Rahul Dravid, who has announced his retirement in Bangalore.
After 16 years at the top alongside fellow run-gatherers extraordinaire Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Virender Sehwag, the Dravid retirement has sparked huge interest around the world as cricketers pay tribute to man who graced the game not only with his outtanding defence and graceful strokeplay but his dignity and eloquence throughout - exemplified by his retirement speech.
In more than 500 appearances for India, he scored more than 23,000 runs and only Tendulkar has scored more Test runs than the man from Indore, earning the nickname "The Wall" for his sound defensive technique.
He will continue to play in the Indian Premier League for the Rajasthan Royals. Although he was a latecomer to Twenty20 Intenational cricket, he hit 3 sixes during his one and only T20 International against England at Old Trafford last year.
