#6 When Rahul Dravid advised Kevin Pietersen on how to play spin.
Kevin Pietersen had struggled to play Bangladeshi spinners in a tour earlier and had asked Rahul’s advice on how to play spin well. In his book ‘KP: The Autobiography’, Kevin Pietersen published a letter that Rahul had written to him, counselling him on how to overcome his defect.
Kevin Pietersen later said “The kindness, generosity and the time he took to write that email and as simple as he made it sound, it was so beneficial to me. It was beneficial for English cricket too as I managed to sort out a deficiency in my technique, which assisted England because it helped me perform a lot better for my country.”
