Rahul's bat, Kumble's jersey fetch rich dividends

While Sachin Tendulkar's bat fetched Rs 42 L for an auction held on Friday was covered in the media with galore, but what was lost in the paragraphs was that Rahul Dravid's bat and Anil Kumble's jerseys also went under the hammer and fetched handsome dividends.

Sachin's bat fetched the highest at the auction which was held by NGO 'The Foundation' founded by actor and ex-rugby international player Rahul Bose. Tied at second spot was the rifle used by India's only individual Olympic gold medallist shooter Abhinav Bindra, when creating history at the Beijing Games two years ago and the bat of Rahul Dravid, with which he had scored a century in each innings in the Kolkata Test of 2005 against Pakistan. Both were successfully bid for Rs 20 lakh. Anil Kumble's jersey which he wore when he equalled Jim Laker's ten-wicket in a Test innings record against Pakistan in New Delhi in 1999, and his Test cap that he wore between 2004 and 2006 went for Rs 11.5 lakh.
