While the Indian Premier League always gives the fans an opportunity  to see some absolutely top class cricket, there is no denying the fact that it also gives them the chance to see their best cricket stars getting involved in some hilarious banters. Well, the first match of the season between Sunrisers and Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore did not witness such incidents but the second game between Rising Pune Supergiant and Mumbai Indians saw it right at the beginning of the match when former England batsman Kevin Pietersen and MS Dhoni got involved in a hilarious banter that is bound to leave one and all in splits.

The incident happened in the second over of the game when the commentators were interacting with Rising Pune Supergiant player Manoj Tiwary who was standing at slip.  Sensing an opportunity to pull Dhoni’s legs, Pietersen asked Tiwary to convey Dhoni that he is a better golfer than him. And Tiwary obliged by conveying Pietersen’s message to Dhoni. However, the former India skipper came out on top by reminding Pietersen that he was still his first Test wicket.

Here is the entire conversation:

Kevin Pietersen: You are looking good, mate. Can you just do me a favor and can you just whisper in MS’ ear that I am a better golfer than him?”

Manoj Tiwary:  I will do that after this ball.

Kevin Pietersen: Thank you. Come on, you have got an opportunity now. Please tell him. Please tell him.

Manoj Tiwary: (Speaking to MS Dhoni) bhaiya, Kevin Pietersen bol raha hai ki woh aapse better golfer hai. [ Kevin Pietersen says he is a better golfer than you]

MS Dhoni: He is still my first Test wicket

Kevin Pietersen: It was a referral. It was a referral. Not Out. I’ll tell you what it’s wonderful when you get real good people on the mic, you got the players on there, you get some great stuff. Well done, mate.

 

Here is a clip of that incident:

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
