Cricket was not KP's first love. Before picking up the bat, the right-hander was into rugby. An injury on the arm didn't allow him to continue his first love ( IE Photo: Ravi Kanojia)

From football to rugby to cricket, Pietersen touched all and enthralled the audience with his answers. The intelligent gathering, including Justice Mukul Mudgal (R), burst into laughter when KP spoke about commentator Navjot Singh Sidhu. He said," Sidhu is fascinating for ten minutes, after that we mute him" (IE Photo: Tashi Tobgyal)
