A great start for Rahul! In a practice match against Central Stags, he scored a ton (102 in 164 balls with 13 boundaries).
Here are some pics:
"It was a good game, I really enjoyed it and it was a good chance to bat and spend some time in the middle and also it was a good competitive game and it was disappointing not to win the game," Dravid said after the national championship match ended in a draw.
Asked about when he heard he was turning out for Canterbury, Dravid said: "About 48 hours before I left (India)."
"There was a bit of uncertainty about when we (India's test specialists) would come here and what was going to happen with the practice games, because of various issues. So I was asked to pack up and leave and play in a couple of days and it was good fun.
"It was a really good wicket, it started out a little slow and damp, but it didn't misbehave and it played well right through until the end of the game."
