His innings helped Karnataka to manage a draw and one point against Mumbai after being bowled out for just 195 runs in the first innings.

Dravid’s 214, which was his 50th first class three-figure score, came in 330 balls in 437 minutes. It included 21 fours and five sixes.

Dravid, who has been dropped for the first two one-day international matches against Pakistan, said after the match that regular fall of wickets didn’t allow them to attack.

“We kept losing regular wickets, lot of players in our team are quite young as well and it would have been a good education for them to play a quality attack,” he said.

“It is satisfying to have played a innings that helped the team. It would have been better had I played a big knock in the first innings. To be honest 195 was never going to be enough, we needed at least 300 but credit to them. Ajit got couple of wickets early and Ramesh bowled very well,” said the 34-year-old Karnataka player.

His today’s innings is likely to get the attention of the national selectors who are due to meet on Thursday at Mohali to pick the team for the rest of three matches against visiting Pakistani team. (ANI)
