According to the fresh sports updates, just one day to go for the first test match between the two top class test teams in the world. India and Australia are the two highly rated cricket teams, and are scheduled to play first test match from December 26, 2011.
While “all players fit for Boxing day,” this announcement made by Dhoni in a press conference after the doubts were to be arose over India’s bowler pacer Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma fitness, now the next doubted fact is, not batting by the most recommendable Indian batsmen Rahul Dravid in the first Test against Australia.
In a source report, On Saturday, when all the member of Indian team was practiced in the net at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Dravid wasn’t seen in the net practice.
After seeing the major pressure over the fitness of Indian Batsmen, the Media manager of the team, GS Walia cleared in his statement, “Indian batman Rahul Dravid is fine and nothing would be wrong with him. He just wanted to have break ahead the first Test against Australia beginning on Monday and the team management has acceded to his request.”
At the mean time , when Dravid needs only 28 runs to complete a well score record of 2000 runs against Australia in Tests, the announcement of his skipping net practice is really disappointing Dravid’s fan.
At present, Rahul Dravid has 1972 runs from 29 Tests at a rather meager average of 41.08 with just two centuries — the 180 he hit at Eden Gardens during the 2001 series and the 233 he managed at Adelaide during the 2004 series.
