Why Rahul Dravid Declared the Inning When Sachin was on 194

  • In 2004, this was the same inning against Pakistan where Sehwag scored his first triple hundred. He scored 309 in the inning and India was 675 for 5 wickets in the inning. Well, almost 2 days were dissipated in this and Dravid would have not wanted to waste more time in turning the test a draw.
  • After 2000, Sachin Tendulkar was high cautious when he was batting in the 90s or 190s. He would use a lot of balls to reach his hundred and many times, it was due to this nervousness that he got out without reaching a hundred. This could be one of the major reasons why Dravid considered declaring the inning instead of seeing the double hundred by Sachin.
  • India was batting in the first inning and they still had to take 20 wickets of Pakistani players including veterans such as Imran Farhat, Yasir Hameed, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, Abdul Razzaq, and Moin Khan etc. These players were really good considering the non-experienced bowling lineup in the Indian team.
