Of the many records that Rahul Dravid holds, maximum number of deliveries faced in Test Cricket is the least feted. Dravid has met 31,258 deliveries in 164 Tests. To understand how big this number is, let’s tell you that he is followed only by Sachin Tendulkar, who faced 29,437 deliveries that too in a career that spanned eight more years and 36 more Tests. *Let that sink in.* Take a stance, focus, react, repeat, more than 31,000 times! Different venues, different bowlers and different match conditions.
