Dravid emulates Don
Cricket for India

 

 

Indian vice captain Rahul Dravid today emulated the legendary Donald Bradman when he scored his third successive double centuries in as many series in test cricket . His latest effort of 270 which remains his highest ever score , against Pakistan at Rawalpindi , follows his equally magnificent innings of 222 against New Zealand at Ahmedabad and 233 versus Australia at Adelaide - all registered during the on-going 2003-04 season

Bradman, in fact , has notched up as many as six double tons in three consecutive test innings in the early thirties - an achievement of staggering dimension indeed .
