ICC Rectifies The Mistake After Being Trolled For Disrespecting Rahul Dravid

The International Cricket Council (ICC) was caught with a major mistake referring to Rahul Dravid as a left-handed batsman on their Hall of Fame page. Twitterati’s badly trolled out cricket’s world governing body for its embarrassing blunder.

Later on, the Hall of Fame page, which is available on ICC’s official website, has been updated and the mistake rectified.

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.

India’s batting great, Rahul Dravid, known to be ‘The Wall’ by many, was officially inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame in the month of November. He was the fifth player from India after Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev, Gavaskar, and Anil Kumble to be named on the elite list.

Moreover, 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.

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

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

Twitterati’s slammed the international governing body pointing out their huge blunder.
