Cardiff: Ending what has been a nightmarish tour positively is not the only motivation for the Indian team to win the final cricket ODI against England. The side would also want to ensure a fitting farewell to veteran Rahul Dravid, who plays his final one-dayer on Friday. (Also read: Will Dhoni make Dravid's ODI farewell special?)
Dravid, who has amassed 10,820 runs in 343 ODIs at an average of 39, has announced his retirement from one-day cricket after this series and he would be keen to go on a high, more so since the first four games of the series have only yielded 51 runs for him.
The 38-year-old right-hander, nicknamed 'The Wall' for his rock solid defence and consistency, has scored 12 hundreds and 82 fifties in the ODIs and he would want to notch up a big knock on Friday to make his swan song appearance memorable.
