Dravid bowled again, for the 54th time

Perth, Jan 15: This is one record Indian batsman Rahul Dravid would have done without. "The Wall" known for his watertight technique now holds the dubious distinction of being bowled most times in Test cricket history with 54 times.

Dravid, who was bowled again on the third day of the Perth Test against Australia on Sunday, went past former Australian skipper Allan Border (53) in the list of most bowled batsman.

India lost the Perth Test on Sunday by an innings and 37 runs to hand the series to the home team. Australia lead 3-0 with one Test to go in Adelaide.

The 39-year-old right-hander was bowled for the fifth time on the current tour of Australia. Dravid's leg-stump was flattened by paceman Ryan Harris at the WACA Ground and the Bangalorean was once again left pondering what is going wrong with his reliable techique. He was comprehensively beaten by Harris for a score of 47 in the second innings.

Dravid is playing in his 163rd Test match in Perth.
