Rahul Dravid is widely regarded as a true gentleman of the game

While Dravid had the reputation of being a mind-blowing batsman and a brilliant slip fielder, what many don't know is that he also has five international wickets to his name.

Dravid's maiden international wicket was that of veteran Pakistani opener Saeed Anwar. Playing in an ODI at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur in 1999, Dravid deprived Anwar of a century as he edged one behind the wicket to Nayan Mongia on 95.

Playing against South Africa in an ODI in 2000, Dravid got India two major breakthroughs as he scalped Gary Kirsten (115) and Lance Klusener (0) off consecutive balls. (REVEALED! The reason behind Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag's absence from 500th Test celebration)

In the third match of the same series, Dravid picked his fourth ODI wicket in form of Shaun Pollock.

While he represented India in 344 ODIs, Dravid was given the ball only on eight occasions, where he bowled a total of 31 overs. (TRULY MOTIVATING! Virat Kohli shares 10-year-old photo with Rahul Dravid - Here's why)

Dravid also has one Test wicket to his name. West Indies wicketkeeper batsman Ridley Jacobs was caught by VVS Laxman off Dravid's bowling in 2002.

In the traditional format, Dravid bowled 20 overs in 164 matches.
