Rahul Dravid
Technically accomplished and rated among the finest number three batsmen ever. His defensive approach was initially seen as not suited for one-dayers until he took over as wicket-keeper and added steel to the middle-order to help India reach the 2003 World Cup final. In February 2007, Dravid became only the sixth player to score 10,000 one-day runs. On March 29, 2008, at Chennai's famed MA Chidambaram stadium, he also became the sixth batsman to amass 10,000 Test runs (in his 120th Test) with a push to mid-wicket. He led India in 25 Tests and 79 ODIs.
