Let us have a look at five best knocks of 'The Wall' of Indian cricket: 180* vs Australia (2001)
Two of the greatest Indian Test batsmen, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman, owned this match against world champions Australia when their blazing partnership helped India win the match it was forced to follow-on. This was only the third time this happened since Test matches commenced in 1887. They collectively made a total of 384 on the last day.
144* vs West Indies (2002)
In the era when West Indies were one of the best teams in the world, Dravid saved India from a possible defeat and scored unbeaten 144 to draw the Test.
270 vs Pakistan (2004)
This innings against Pakistan is Rahul Dravid's highest score across all formats. He batted for 12 hours and gifted India a beautiful victory over our arch rivals.
200 vs Zimbabwe (2000)
This was Dravid's first of five double centuries which were to come in next few years. Dravid was more forceful than ever and was supported in his mission by Sachin Tendulkar and Shiv Sunder Das.
233 vs Australia (2003)
There is a reason why Australians feared the Dravid-Laxman duo so much. This was the second time these two came on the pitch to wreck havoc on Aussies with Dravid scoring second highest score of his career in first inning and an important 72 in second. Australia was handed defeat again.
