Both the ICC and the BCCI were lambasted on Twitter by Indian cricket fans on two separate counts – firstly, for the ICC listing Rahul Dravid as a left-handed batsman on the ‘Hall of Fame’ section of their website and secondly for the BCCI captioning a photo of him with Ravi Shastri with the words ‘two greats of Indian cricket’.

Last year, Dravid became the fifth Indian to be inducted in ICC’s Hall of Fame. However, he is listed on the ICC website as a left-handed batsman, a description Indian fans have not taken kindly to.

Dravid was spotted at the India training session on Friday. BCCI drew flak for a post where they said Dravid and Ravi Shastri were two ‘greats’ of Indian cricket.

Dravid is currently in charge of coaching players at the NCA.
