Rahul Dravid had five 200+ scores to his credit in his test career. Take a look at all these five knocks, and others in this collection.

Period: December 2003

Fixture: India V Australia, 2nd Test

Knock: 233 from 446 balls

Match Result: India won by 4 wickets

This match was all about two great knocks and one inspired bowling performance. First, Ricky Ponting showed his hunger for runs by slamming a great double hundred on a placid track at the Adelaide Oval. Then, India's number 3, Rahul Dravid responded in style matching Ponting stroke for stroke. Dravid was in imperious touch as he played with great temperament to score 233, which helped India mitigate the first innings deficit to just 33. Ajit Agarkar then bowled a dream spell to pick 6 for 41 and help India sense victory. With some good top order contributions, India went on to win the Test match.
