Dravid admitted in ICU, to fly back to India tomorrow
Indian Middle Order Batsman, Rahul Dravid has been admitted in ICU in the Dhaka Hospital. Rahul Dravid retired hurt after being struck by a bouncer from Shahadat Hossain fracturing his jaw.
Tendulkar and Dravid put on a huge partnership for the 3rd wicket. Tendulkar’s hundred arrived off 134 balls, with Dravid following suit from 178 deliveries – the 29th time he had reached three figures in a Test.
They were eventually separated when Shahadat, armed with the second new ball, stunned Dravid with a well-directed bouncer which struck him on the flap protecting his left ear and forced him to return to the dressing room.
India managed a 220+ lead with Dravid and The Maestro out scoring everyone. Tendulkar soon fell to Shakib as India lost five wickets in the process.
But sadly, for India, in form Rahul Dravid will fly back home tomorrow and will miss cricket for about 3 months.
