BANGALORE, India, MAR 9 (AP/UNB) - Rahul Dravid has announced his retirement from both international and domestic cricket after a 16-year career that saw him acclaimed as one of the best batsmen of his era.
The 39-year-old made the announcement Friday at a media conference he addressed jointly with Board of Control for Cricket in India president Narainswamy Srinivasan.
Dravid, who has already retired from one-day and Twenty20 cricket, scored five centuries in 2011 but could manage only 194 runs during India's recent 4-0 test whitewash in Australia.
Dravid has scored 13,228 runs in 164 tests with 36 centuries, and 10,889 runs in 344 one-dayers with 12 centuries.
He holds the record for most catches by a fielder in tests with a tally of 210.
