In his career spanning over 16 years, Dravid had played 164 Tests to become the second highest run getter in Test history with 13,288 runs, behind only Sachin Tendulkar who has 15,470 runs.

In One-Day Internationals, he has aggregated 10,889 runs from 344 games. He is one of the 10 players in the world and one of three Indians to be in the coveted club of 10,000 runs. He reached the mark way back in February 2007, having just played nine matches in 2009 and last year.
