Indian fans bash ICC, BCCI for disrespecting Rahul Dravid; see tweets
Mumbai: Both ICC and BCCI faced criticism on Twitter by Indian cricket fans on two separate instances-- firstly, for the ICC listing Rahul Dravid as a left-handed batsman on the 'Hall of Fame' section of their website and secondly, for the BCCI for captioning a photo of Dravid and Shastri as ‘two greats of Indian cricket’. Dravid was spotted at Team India's training session on Friday.
In 2018, Dravid became the fifth Indian to be inducted in ICC’s Hall of Fame. However, he is listed on the ICC website as a left-handed batsman, leading to many Indian fans getting irked.
Dravid played 164 Tests and 344 ODIs for India from 1996 to 2012 and scored a total of 24,177 runs across the two formats.
