Rahul Dravid declines honorary doctorate

One of the all time batting greats and former Indian cricket captain Rahul Dravid declined to accept an honorary doctorate degree conferred on him by the Bangalore University, saying that he would like to accomplish research in the field of sports and then earn the degree. One of Karnataka and Bengaluru's favourite sons, Dravid went on to represent India in 164 Test matches and scored 13,288 runs, the second most by an Indian in cricket's oldest format after Sachin Tendulkar. The Bangalore University had decided to honour Dravid during its 52nd Annual Convocation ceremony on January 27, but the 44-year old current Indian U-19 team coach politely declined the degree.
