Rawalpindi: With his maiden century against Pakistan in Rawalpindi on Wednesday, Indian vice-captain Rahul Dravid joined a select group of batsmen to have scored a century against all but one Test playing nation.

The only country against whom Dravid has not scored a century is Bangladesh.

Dravid's 17th century, which came on the second day of the series-deciding Test, was his 11th hundred abroad, making the stylish batsman one of the few batsmen in world cricket to have better career average overseas than at home.

The 31-year-old, who began his career in England in 1996, has so far played 78 Tests. He had 6585 runs at the start of this match at a superb average of 56.28.

He began with a 95 against England at Lord's and scored his first century in his ninth Test against South Africa at Johannesburg in the 1996-97 season.
