    Rahul Dravid delivered the 9th Sir Donald Bradman Oration at the Australian War Memorial on the evening of Wednesday 14 December.

    Rahul Dravid became the first Indian to deliver this speech in a function held at Canberra.

    Rahul Dravid, right from his debut in 1996, to the recently held England series, India never lost a match when Dravid scored a Test century against any of the top 8 cricketing nations. That's as reliable as you can get in today's topsy turvy world of Test cricket.What began at Lord's 15 years ago, ended at Lord's this year.

    An event which honours the career, contribution and memory of the world's greatest-ever cricketer, the Sir Donald Bradman Oration is a feature of the Australian cricket calendar and a celebration of the spirit of cricket.
    The function provides a platform for a prominent national or international figure to reflect on Sir Donald's career, and on cricket's place in their own lives and the life of the nation.
