As all sporting activities are currently suspended due to the pandemic that is Covid-19, fans all around the fan faces the tragedy of boredom. In such situation, Kevin Pietersen has sure made all of us feel entertained, although the laughter comes at his extent.
The South Africa born retired English batsman posted a tweet to ask Indians to fight together against the pandemic. “Namaste india hum sab corona virus ko harane mein ek saath hai , hum sab apne apne sarkar ki baat ka nirdes kare aur ghar me kuch Dino ke liye rahe , yeh samay hai hosiyaar rahene ka .App sabhi ko der sara pyaar,” he tweeted, all while crediting Bengal wicketkeeper batsman Shreevats Goswami as his Hindi teacher.
Namaste india 🙏 hum sab corona virus ko harane mein ek saath hai , hum sab apne apne sarkar ki baat ka nirdes kare aur ghar me kuch Dino ke liye rahe , yeh samay hai hosiyaar rahene ka .App sabhi ko der sara pyaar 💕

The tweet also found itself trolled upon by the Twitterati, but the response was overwhelmingly positive.
Pietersen then went on to upload a picture on Instagram, where a leopard, a black dog to the left of him looks eerily at the camera, while a parrot on his right shoulder doesn’t. He captioned the pic as: ‘Animal Whisperer.’
Yuvraj Singh went on to spill the beans that the picture was photoshopped. “Nice photoshop bro,” he commented hilariously on the picture. It led to the barrage of laughter on the comment section, all while people compared Pietersen to Ace Ventura and Dr Dolittle. Pietersen did confess that the picture was, well, photoshopped.
This is not the first time Yuvi and Pietersen have indulged in playful banter. It has happened previously, over their favourite football clubs in the English Premier League, those being Manchester United and Chelsea, respectively. Both were excellent hard hitters in their playing career, and a lot of time helped their respective national team win memorable matches over the other, no it is no surprise that the two would indulge in some merry banter, playful and harmless in nature.
