ICC Corrects Mistake After Being Trolled For Rahul Dravid Gaffe

However, on Friday, reports emerged in the Indian media, pointing to ICC’s mistake where it listed Dravid as “BATTING: LEFT-HAND”.

Fans were left fuming by the error and took to Twitter to slam the international governing body.

The mistake was corrected and Dravid’s information updated on ICC’s website.

On July 2, 2018, the ICC had announced Dravid and Australian legend Ricky Ponting’s induction into the Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Dublin.

However, the memento was presented to Dravid by India’s legendary opener Sunil Gavaskar ahead of a One-Day International (ODI) between India and the Windies in Thiruvananthapuram.

Dravid aggregated 13,288 runs in 164 Tests with 36 centuries and 10,889 runs in 344 ODIs with 12 centuries.

In July this year, batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame, thus becoming the sixth Indian to receive the honour.

Tendulkar, the most prolific batsman in history, was inducted immediately after becoming eligible for induction, which requires that a player should have played his last international match at least five years before.

The 46-year-old former right-hand batsman is regarded the greatest to have played the game along with Sir Donald Bradman and remains the top run-accumulator in both Tests and ODIs.

Tendulkar, who retired in November 2013, tallied 15,921 runs in Tests and 18,426 in ODIs, both of which remain records.
