London:

Rahul Dravid plays his last ODI when India take on England at Cardiff on Friday. The veteran batsman said a day earlier that he would want to end his 15-year career with a win, especially as his team is yet to taste victory in the ongoing series.

Dravid had announced his retirement from the 50-over format before the ODI series against England began and said on Thusday that the feeling of retiring was yet to sink in. "It doesn't feel like it is the end since I will be playing Tests. Also I thought I wouldn't be playing ODI 2 years ago. So my life will not change up. But it has been a satisfying ODI career," he said.

Dravid, who made his debut against Sri Lanka in 1996, said that two of his most satisfying moments in ODI was reaching the 2003 World Cup final and the 2011 World Cup win. With a batting average of 39.06 from 343 matches and a high score of 153, Dravid will look to play a big role for his side when he comes out to bat in the 'blue' for the final time.
