War of trolls: Kevin Pietersen gets cheeky after Chepauk Test, Wasim Jaffer hits back


Continuing his antics in Hindi, former cricketer Kevin Pietersen on Tuesday yet again took a cheeky dig against India and congratulated Virat Kohli and boys for beating “England B” in the second Test in Chennai. 

After facing a heavy defeat in the opening clash of the four-match series, Team India bounced back with a comprehensive 317-run win to level the series 1-1. 

“Badhai ho india, England B Ko harane ke liye (Congratulations India, for beating England B”, Pietersen tweeted shortly after the conclusion of the match. 

Hitting back at the former England international, Wasim Jaffer urged people to not make fun of Pietersen and wondered if an England team is complete without a South Africa-origin player in it. Pietersen was born in South Africa and had also taken part in several first-class matches in the country.

This is not the first time Pietersen has taken to Twitter to express his thoughts in Hindi. After the conclusion of the opening encounter at the same venue, the former England cricketer reminded that he had warned India not to be overconfident after winning the Border-Gavaskar series last month.

He had done the same following India’s historic win in Australia in January this year.

Pitersen also expressed shock on Moeen Ali choosing to return home and leave the team midway during the series.

Moeen Ali will miss the remaining two Tests against India in Ahmedabad as he is returning to England to be with his family. Moeen, who was not picked in the playing XI for the first encounter, finished the second Test with eight wickets and scored 49 runs.
