Rahul Dravid celebrating his 33rd International Century/
It was one of the most beautiful innings of his career, Which i believe RD will cherish for a life time.He had missed out the century on his debut at the Lords cricket ground where he made 95 and was just five runs short of his century.Mean while Sourav Ganguly who was at the other end went on to make a debut century.It was a dream for RD to get a century and that long time dream has come true after 15 long years.We congragulate Dravid on this achivement.

Rahul Dravid celebrating his maiden century at Lords.

Rahul Dravid's 103 notout came of 344 balls at a strike rate close to 46.Dravid kept his cool while wickets were falling at the other end.It was Ishant Sharma who got out last while Rahul was at the other end.He burst out into celebration once he hit the century and that showed how much he cared about that century.India has avoided follow-on and at Stumps England were batting at 5/0 with Strauss and Cook at the crease.The test could easily go into a draw by the looks, Anyway it would be interesting to watch how India can cope up with the absence of Zaheer Khan.
