New Delhi: The Karnail Singh Stadium on Thursday had a surprise guest as star batsman Rahul Dravid dropped in to watch his state Karnataka play against Railways.

Clad in green T-shirt and blue denims, Rahul walked around half past 10 much to the delight of the Karnataka team. He enquired about the pitch and said, "I guess it's good toss to win for Karnataka."

The Indian team had a day off on Thursday after winning inside four days and players stayed back in capital.

Dravid watched the proceedings sitting beside Karnataka coach Karthik Jeswanth as Robin Uthappa blazed his way to a fine century. Once Uthappa completed his ton, Dravid gave him a standing ovation along with others.

At lunch, he visited the dressing room and had a quick chat with the Karnataka boys before leaving the venue.
