International career

Rahul played his first international ODI match against Sri Lanka on 3 April 1996. His performance was not commendable, he scored meager three runs and took two wickets, his next match also didn’t go well. Unlike his ODI career, his test career was successful.

Dravid was selected for the tour against England because of his consistent performance in domestic cricket. He made his test debut on 20 June 1996, against England in the second test of the series. 

Criticism from selectors improved his ODI career and during the 1999 World Cup, he was in his top form. He became the highest run-scorer in the world cup tournament. As a non-wicket-keeper, he has a record of taking the highest number of wickets.
