Yuvraj Singh and Kevin Pietersen have always had a history when it comes to action both on the cricket field and off it. Singh used to dismiss Pietersen for fun during their playing days. Pietersen had famously called Yuvraj Singh a pie-chucker. But the duo have always stayed good mates off the field, especially post retiring from active cricket. Singh taunted Pietersen on Twitter and sparked a conversation.
It is not news to anyone that Kevin Pietersen is a huge Chelsea fan. While Yuvraj Singh, on the other hand, is a die-hard fan of Manchester United. Both Pietersen and Singh have had a running banter on this subject. Twitter has been blaze with their quick repartee. The cricketing duo wastes no time in pulling one up over the other when it comes to football. They are so passionate about the teams they support that they come out all guns blazing in their glory.
Pietersen, in his latest tweet, seemed clearly upset with the media and how it has been constantly been changing its colours. He also added that it has become difficult for him to deal with the media in the United Kingdom. He tweeted a post saying, “Chelsea top of the premier league a month or so ago, now media after Lampard! Media after Ole a few months ago and now Utd top of the league so he’s ok! Dealing with the media in this country is as tough as the actual job!”
Yuvraj Singh had a savage response:
Yuvraj Singh stunningly responded to Pietersen’s tweet. He replied, “R u hurting baby?”. Singh was enquiring about Pietersen whether he was upset with the way Chelsea played and Manchester United on the other hand are performing pretty well. To make matters worse, Chelsea is languishing at the 8th spot in the points table. Yuvraj Singh’s response was a timely one as it will certainly irk Pietersen no end. The fans of both the players are waiting for Pietersen’s response. As of now, Yuvraj Singh holds the aces in the Twitter battle against his rival-turned-friend Kevin Pietersen.
R u hurting baby 😂
