Dravid out of reckoning for ICC Awards
Dravid, who received the inaugural award for the Test Player of the Year and the Player of the Year last season, was among the nominations for ODI Player of the Year and Player of the Year announced last month.
Also going out of the reckoning were Dravid's teammates Virender Sehwag, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh who were all nominated in the Test Player of the Year category.Dinesh Karthik remained the lone Indian hope in the Emerging Player of Year section after the ICC pruned the list of nominations.
"Of course I am disappointed. But then we have not had many matches this season, obviously performance matters," Kumble told a media conference to announce the shortlist.England's Andrew Flintoff remained in contention for the ODI Player of the Year award, which he won last year, while also being nominated for the Player of the Year award.
Aussie Adam Gilchrist featured in three categories while Test cricket's leading wicket-taker Shane Warne was in the running for Test Player award.
Besides the players' awards, there would also be team awards for Test and ODI teams of the year and Spirit of Cricket Award.
