Dravid at 3

Interesting to hear Daryll Cullinan agreeing that Rahul Dravid should bat 3 for India in one-dayers. He averages 48 from 5 as opposed to 40 regardless of his batting position, but 5 just isn't right for him.

As we burbled about a couple of days ago, the Wall is better off going in at 3 unless the 1st wicket doesn't fall until the second half of the innings. That way he can be the player that all the others play around, and during power-plays he can take advantage without any aerial shots because of his class....
