Team India have registered a convincing win over England in the second Test in Chennai. However, after the win, former cricketer Kevin Pietersen tried to troll India by praising them for beating England’s ‘B’ team, but he got trolled too as the former India batsman Wasim Jaffer has respondent with a hilarious tweet.
Pietersen wrote in a sarcastic tweet where he congratulated India on their 317-run win in the Test in Chennai.
Badhai ho india 🇮🇳,England B Ko harane ke liye 😉

Meanwhile, Wasim Jaffer, who has recently been in the news, replied to him citing that England can never be a full-strength without players from South Africa. Pietersen himself comes from South Africa but he had played for England and became one of the best batsmen as well.

With this win, Team India have levelled the four-match Test series 1-1 as well. India successfully bundled out England for 164 in their second innings with more than four sessions of the match in hand.
However, the victory was important for India to keep the hope alive for their qualification in the World Test Championship (WTC) as they require to win the series with at least a margin of 2-1 in order to reach the final to Lord’s for the inaugural title clash against New Zealand. It is also noteworthy that, Team India had lost the first Test at the same venue by a huge margin of 227 runs.
Meanwhile, India, England and Sri Lanka are all on the verge of having a chance of reaching the final of the inaugural WTC final as well. However, Team India need to win the four-match Test series either 2-1 or 3-1 in order to make it to the final in June at Lord’s against New Zealand.
On the other hand, England have a tough task ahead at hand as only a 3-1 series victory can guarantee their position in the final of WTC, meaning they have to win the next two Tests against England at Ahmedabad. However, Australia can only qualify if England wins the series 2-1 or the series ends in a draw as well.
⬆️ India move to the No.2 position
⬇️ England slip to No.4
