In a career that has spanned over 15 years now, Dravid has scored 36 Test centuries, 32 of which have assured at least a draw for India. Dravid's career average is over 53 runs per innings and is only behind Sachin Tendulkar in the list of leading run-scorers.

Given the title of 'The Wall' and 'Mr. Dependable' for his solid defence and the ability to rescue India from impossible circumstances, Dravid has been the pillar of Indian batting for years.

India are chasing West Indies' first innings total of 590 runs in the final Test match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. India lead the series 2-0.
