Rahul Dravid was born in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Rahul's affection with the game of cricket never pushed him off track when it came to scoring highly in exams.

Rahul's father worked in a Jam company which inspired the cricketing prodigy's nickname 'Jammy'. Although the nick name did have a lot to do with Rahul's sheer persistence on the field. He used to wear the bowlers out and bat for hours.
