In the list of Hall of Fame members, the International Cricket Council (ICC) goofed up in the description of Rahul Dravid. On the website, Dravid’s batting style was described in an opposite manner.

Dravid, who has scored over 24,000 international runs, was described to be a left handed batsman in the ICC website. “Batting: Left-Hand,” was written when Dravid’s page was opened in the ICC Hall of Fame section.

Cricket fans were naturally left unhappy when the blunder was noticed. Many fans took to twitter to express their disappointment.

ICC later changed it to what it should have been, after it spreaded quite quickly.

Dravid was introduced into the ICC Hall of Fame in 2018, along with Ricky Ponting and England women’s cricketer Claire Taylor. He became the fifth Indian to be awarded with the honour after Sunil Gavaskar, Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev and Anil Kumble. Earlier this year, Dravid’s colleague for more than a decade, Sachin Tendulkar was also introduced to the Hall of Fame alongside South African pacer Alan Donald.
