It was a cheerful day for me (and all the fans) because our hero has achieved it!
10000 runs in Tests! What a knock to cross the 10k mark.It was a typical Dravid innings with an array of beautiful, technically perfect strokes.He played the cover drives, straight drives, flick, glance and gave a treat to the viewers.He started quite slowly (hence being criticized) but he played for his team.He played his role of sticking to the wicket perfectly.While Sehwag was going on rampage, Dravid decided to offer a strike to him.He said after the day's play that he has always preferred to build partnerships over individual score.
He reached his fifty with a superb straight drive.Then he kept on taking ones and twos and exposing the South African bowling to Sehwag.
After the wicket of Sehwag, it was only Rahul Dravid (and VVS Laxman) who played with confidence.Dravid assured that his team remains in safe position.
It was a treat to watch him play after a break of 2 months.
This run machine will never stop!
