Rahul Dravid has been inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame, becoming only the fifth Indian to receive the honor after Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar and Anil Kumble.

The Indian cricket legend was inducted along with former Australia captain Ricky Ponting and England batting great Claire Taylor.

With 13,288 runs in 164 Test matches, Dravid is fourth on the list of all-time highest run-getters in the longest format of the game behind only Sachin Tendulkar, Ponting and Jacques Kallis.

Taylor is the seventh woman overall and the third woman player from England to be named in the list.

Former ICC Cricket Hall of Famers and members of the media selected the three.

Ponting, who scored more than 13,000 runs in both Tests and one-day internationals, said, “I loved every moment of my journey as a player and am so very proud of the team and personal achievements along the way.”
