Delhi Daredevils coach Rahul Dravid is hopeful that his team will start their campaign in the 2017 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on a positive note.

Dravid started the first day of training for the 2017 season with a session at the Delhi Daredevils Academy in Palam Vihar. He met the trainees at the academy and interacted with them for close to 90 minutes. The former India captain shared invaluable ideas with the trainees and provided them with advice to deal with match situations.

Legendary Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid has been elected the newest member of the Laureus World Sports Academy, a unique collection of the world’s greatest living sportsmen and sportswomen.

Dravid, the fourth-highest run scorer in the history of Test cricket, is the 47th member of the Laureus Academy and he was in action straight away at a school in London’s East End, where he joined fellow Academy Member Steve Waugh, meeting and playing cricket with young coaches who have been trained with support from the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation.

Celebrating 200 years of Lord’s definitely proved to be a runfest as Aaron Finch and Yuvraj Singh starred on the ‘legend-filled’ day with individual tons as Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) beat Rest of the World Xl (RoW) by 7 wickets.

RoW skipper Shane Warne won the toss and elected to bat first as Yuvraj Singh responded with a fine century to help his side post a target of 294 on the board. However, the MCC batsmen eased to the total thanks to Aaron Finch who played most of his 145-ball 181 in overdrive mode.

Adam Gilchrist and Virender Sehwag, two of the world’s deadliest batsmen in their careers, opened the batting for RoW and they were up against a fiery Brett Lee and Umar Gul first up. Gilchrist looked the same old attacking player as he raced to 29 off 21 balls with four consecutive boundaries off express pacer and fellow countryman Shaun Tait as RoW posted 50 on the board inside just 6 overs. Sehwag looked steady at the other end before Lee knocked over his middle stump for 22, leaving the scoreboard showing 54-1.

Rahul Dravid made his final appearance on the cricket field earlier this week when his Rajasthan Royals played the Mumbai Indians in the final of the 2013 Champions League T20. The game was also Sachin Tendulkar's Final T20 game and on the day, it was Tendulkar's Mumbai Indians side that emerged victorious. Dravid scored just 1, and watched on as a jubilant Mumbai Indians side went on a victory parade around the Feroz Shah Kotla after the game. Typical of how he played his cricket on the field over his career, Dravid bowed out with what he had earned, his head held high, his dignity intact and with greater promise to come back stronger. Only this one time, there would be no comeback for the great man. It was not the best ending, but Dravid's greatness and his character were played out long before the events of this Sunday. He will always be remembered as one of India's premier batsman, and as one of the greatest batsman in the history of Test Cricket.

Rahul Dravid was born on 11 January 1973 in Indore, Madhya Pradesh into a middle class family. His family moved to Bangalore shortly thereafter, a city where Dravid would learn the roots of his cricket and later represent his state at the national level.

The Rajasthan Royals kicked off the 2013 edition of the Champions League T20 with a comfortable 7 wicket win over the IPL Champions Mumbai Indians in Jaipur today.

In a game which really failed to excite, Mumbai battled their way to 142-7 from their 20 overs after the Royals made the most of some friendly bowling conditions. Vikramjeet Malik took 3-24 to give the Royals an outstanding start to the game as the Indians slipped to 43-4 in the 9th over with Sachin Tendulkar the third of the early quartet to fall for 15.

The Mumbai Indians beat the Rajasthan Royals by 14 runs in an entertaining contest at the Wankhede Stadium that guarantees them a place in the qualifier, relegating the losing side in all likelihood to the eliminator barring a dramatic final group game for either them or the Chennai Super Kings. The match itself had some major momentum swings, with Rajasthan delighted with their efforts with the ball, but having a poor start before launching a terrific come back only to fall short in the end.

Two well balanced sides with an equal number of points collided against each other at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday evening with one being the formidable Mumbai Indians and the other the sensational Rajasthan Royals. Despite both teams having already confirmed a spot among the top four, it was important for each of them to win to ensure that they went into the Qualifier instead of the Eliminator round in the playoffs.

The Rajasthan Royals thrashed the Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets in a thrilling contest to finish their home season with a perfect 8 from 8 record at Fortress Jaipur.

The Rajasthan Royals stuck with their winning formula of winning the toss and putting the opposition in at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur, where they continued to remain unbeaten heading into this game.
