Pietersen warns India in a tweet in Hindi: ‘Real team’ is coming now
NEW DELHI: Kevin Pietersen’s tweet in Hindi language had the netizens in splits as the former England skipper asked India to celebrate their monumental Test series-win over Australia but also warned that the ‘real team’ is coming to take them on. The former England skipper tweeted after India’s heart-stopping three-wicket won in the Brisbane Test on Tuesday.
“India – yeh aitihaasik jeet ka jashn manaye kyuki yeh sabhi baadhao ke khilaap hasil hui hai (India celebrate this historic win because it has come after overcoming all the obstacles),” Pietersen tweeted.
“LEKIN, ASLI TEAM toh kuch hafto baad a rahi hai jisse aapko harana hoga apne ghar mein (But the real team is coming after a few weeks and you have to beat it in your own backyard),” he wrote referring to India’s next assignment against England at home.
In the home series against England, Virat Kohli will be back at the helm as he returned to the squad after missing the last three Tests in Australia due to the birth of his first child.
The four-match series, starting February 5, will be played inside a bio-bubble in Chennai and Ahmedabad.
“Satark rahe, 2 saptaah mein bahut adhik jashn manaane se saavadhaan rahen (Stay alert and don’t over-celebrate in these two weeks),” added the former England captain.
