Dravid vs Australia — Will Australia succeed in tearing up this wall ?

Dravid known for single-handedly winnning a test than a ODI though people forget easily that he had a very successful 1999 Cricket World Cup scoring over 450 runs and he was the highest run getter in the 7th world cup. Dravid was involved in two of the largest partnerships in ODIs: a 318-run partnership with Sourav Ganguly, the first pair to combine for a 300-run partnership, and then a 331-run partnership with Sachin Tendulkar, which is the present world record.

Dravid’s golden phase started in Kolkata 2001, with a supporting act, when he made 180 to supplement VVS Laxman’s classic effort of 281 against Australia.

In the recent 2007 series against Pakistan he was dropped of poor form in one days this is only the second time in an 11-year career.He is struggling and he replied to the critics that he has no problem facing the new ball bowlers led by Brett Lee on the bouncy wickets and he will open batting for India if asked.
