The England team is due to visit India and earlier its former captain Kevin Pietersen on Saturday shared the tricks of playing spin bowling that Rahul Dravid had given him some years ago. Sharing an email sent to him by India’s great batsman Dravid in 2017, Pietersen made a request to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
He said he would give it to Dom Sibley and Jacques Crowley, who are battling to play spin against Sri Lankan left-arm spinner Lasith Ambuldenia. Ambuldenia took their wickets in the first and second Test in the ongoing series against Sri Lanka. England openers Sibale and Crowley have been selected in the squad for the upcoming Test series against India.
Sharing two pages of email sent by Dravid, Peterson wrote on his Twitter handle, ‘England and Wales Cricket Board, get it printed and give it to Sibley and Cowley. If they want, they can call me for a long discussion about it. ‘

Earlier in the tweet, he wrote, ‘Crowley and Sibley should see the email that Dravid sent me about playing spin. This changed my game. ‘ England have to play a four-match Test series on a tour of India.
