... Rahul Dravid has scored the first First-Class Century of English Domestic Season 2011, playing for Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) against Nottinghamshire at Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Stadium, as his team MCC went on to win the fixture within 3 days by a margin of 174 runs.

Random Facts for those who are unaware:

1. This First Class match was played in floodlights with pink cricket balls.

2. The MCC team also had two players from Afghanistan, who were trained by them in their initial years - Hamid Hassan and Mohammed Nabi.

3. Rahul Dravid now has 22552 FC runs, 63 hundreds, and 342 catches.

4. The biggest partnership in this match was between Rahul Dravid and Steve Davis, who has 5483 FC runs and 8 hundreds.

And in a few hours from now, a potentially-epic World Cup semi-final between India and Pakistan will begin...

(The anticipation is driving me nuts)
