Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen took to his official Twitter handle and posted a throwback photo with former India captain MS Dhoni. In the photo, Pietersen can be seen suggesting something to the wicketkeeper-batsman Dhoni.
“Hey, MSD, why don’t you put a fielder over there for me? Scoring runs against you guys is so easy,” Pietersen captioned it while taking a cheeky dig at MS Dhoni.
However, the Indian Premier League (IPL) team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) chipped in with hilarious response to KP’s tweet.
The Chennai-based franchise had posted a classic photo, showing off MS Dhoni’s lightning-fast stumping abilities and then trolled Kevin Pietersen.
“But sometimes you don’t need fielders!”, CSK captioned the photo.
Chennai Super Kings’ savage reply won millions of hearts, drew a lot of attention on the platform and also ended up receiving more retweets than Kevin Pietersen’s initial tweet.
Pietersen and Dhoni, much like others, are currently spending some quality time at home as the world stands and fights against the coronavirus epidemic which has claimed more than lakhs of lives all over the world.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has also suspended 13th season of the Indian Premier League for an indefinite time.
