There was an article lately on cricketnext about Dravid’s practicing against a spinner who has an action like Murali. Meanwhile, avid Dravid follower and fellow blogger K5-litij has dug up some curious facts here. I was intrigued enough and did my own research and the stats are interesting indeed:
1. Dravid has been dismissed by Murali 5 times, next only to Warne and Shoaib Akthar who have got him 7 and 6 times respectively
2. Dravid’s highest of 107 against Sri Lanka is his least highest-score (against each individual nation)
3. Dravid averages 30.6 against Murali.
Curious, aint it? Perhaps that is why he has said that it’ll be a mistake to focus only on Mendis.
Jokes apart, I would agree with that. Murali poses a definite threat and I also agree with Ottayan, who suggests that Vaas could be the most lethal.
