NEW DELHI: India head coach Rahul Dravid is a gentleman for life and has been the most loved cricketer around during his playing days. Former Indian leg spinner and currently a commentator Laxman Sivaramakrishnan revealed the incident that showed the generous side of Dravid.
Sivaramakrishnan disclosed that he offered to work with Dravid as spin bowling coach but the former India skipper refused it as a mark of respect as the leg-spinner was too senior to him.
A Twitter user questioned that Kuldeep Yadav did not bowl according to the field while Aussie spinners Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar made good use of their fielders. He also tagged Sivaramakrishnan to seek his opinion as an expert.

In response to a query, Sivaramakrishnan wrote, “I offered my services to Rahul Dravid and he said that I was too senior to him, to be working under him with the spinners.”
Sairaj Bahutule, who himself was a leg-spinner, is the current Indian spin bowling coach. He was appointed before the four-match Test series between India and Australia.
India suffered the first bilateral ODI series defeat in four years at home after losing the third ODI by 21 runs against Australia in Chennai on Thursday.
