Rahul Dravid, a name that earned the tag of being the dependable batsman of India. Not only with the bat, the wall stood like a wall of defense behind the stumps as well to become one of the most strategical players of his era. The cricketer has got many achievements and records by his name, but one of them are as unique as no one else to hold any such record but only him.

The most unusual moment of Dravid’s cricketing career happened on 31st of August 2011. He was already all set to end his cricketing career in few days while suddenly he got the news that he has been selected for his first T20 international match ever. The team to face against- England, the venue- Manchester. Though he had the intentions to retire soon, he decided to play for his team but announced that this was going to be his first and last T20 international. 

In the lone T20 international match of his life, Dravid scored 31 runs off 21 balls and studded the innings with 3 sixes. Making his debut and retiring in the same match, Rahul Dravid stands the only player to have such a standout record.
