Former cricketers Gautam Gambhir and Kevin Pietersen indulged in an interesting bit of banter on Twitter recently where the Indian southpaw seemed to have the last laugh. Having had illustrious careers with their respective national sides, the two often clashed in head-to-head meetings and they were always observed to give their best in the field.
With the two usually serving as cricket analysts, they have been invited to be a part of a Q/A session heled by Indian channel Star Sports. The promo used by the broadcasters featured a rather serious look from Gambhir, to which Pietersen asked the authorities to make the former opener smile.
In reply, Gambhir responded with acerbic wit and venom as drew a reference to Pietersen’s flop show against India back in 2008 in the enthralling Chennai Test. KP was dismissed for a paltry score by Yuvraj Singh as India achieved victory by six wickets in that fateful encounter.
