Former captains Rahul Dravid of India and Australia's Ricky Ponting have been inducted in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame together with England women's wicketkeeper-batter Claire Taylor, the world governing body said Monday.

Dravid and Ponting both scored more than 10,000 runs in Tests and one-day internationals for their respective nations. They and Taylor were given the honours at a glittering ceremony in Dublin on Sunday.

"Only the very best players in the world are recognised for their contribution to cricket in this way and I would like to congratulate Rahul, Ricky and Claire who are wonderful additions to the list of cricketing luminaries in the Hall of Fame," International Cricket Council chief executive Dave Richardson said.

Dravid became only the fifth player from India to be included in the list after Sunil Gavaskar, Bishan Singh Bedi, Kapil Dev and Anil Kumble.

Ponting is the 25th from Australia while Taylor is the seventh woman overall and the third from England to be named in the list.

The 45-year-old Dravid, who amassed 13,288 runs in 164 Tests with 36 centuries, is now mentoring Indian youngsters as coach of India 'A' and the Under-19 side.

Ponting, 43, ended his career in 2012, accumulating 13,378 runs in 168 Tests with 41 centuries and 13,704 runs in 325 ODIs with 30 centuries.
