Hall of Fame Rahul Dravid

Former captains Rahul Dravid of India and Australia's Ricky Ponting have been inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame for their stupendous achievements in international cricket.

Along with Dravid and Ponting, former England woman wicketkeeper-batswoman Claire Taylor was also named in the Hall of Fame during a ceremony in Dublin on Sunday.

Dravid became only the fifth Indian to be named in the elite list. Ponting is the 25th from Australia to receive the honour.

Former Indian captains Bishan Singh Bedi, Sunil Gavaskar and Kapil Dev were inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame in 2009, while Anil Kumble was included in 2015.

"It is a matter of great honour to be named by the ICC in the Cricket Hall of Fame. To find your name in a list of all-time greats across generations is something one only dreams of while setting out on a cricket career and the kind of recognition that would delight any player," Dravid was quoted as saying in an ICC media release.
