Dravid said instead of trusting his own instincts, he had relied on the judgement of umpire Simon Taufel and non-striker partner Tendukar, who both felt that he was out.
“My first instinct was that I had not hit it. But there was a loud noise, and I couldn't figure out where it had come from. So I asked my partner and he said there was a big noise.
“As soon as I got back to the dressing room I told the guys I had to see the replay. I could never have imagined it was a shoelace,” he said.
