Came out all guns Blazing
Former South Africa spinner Imran Tahir made the most of his reprieves with an unbeaten 52 as World Giants defeated a depleted Indian Maharajas by three wickets in a Legends League Cricket humdinger in Muscat.
The World Giants beat the Asia Lions by 25 runs in a high-scoring final. Sent to bat after losing the toss, the World Giants smashed 256 for 5 in 20 overs, with the Asia Lions responding with 231 for 8.
On Sunday, Pietersen shared a video of the World Giants squad celebrating after the win. In the clip, skipper Daren Sammy, Pietersen, Jonty Rhodes and Monty Panesar, among others, are seen letting out a victory roar.
“I called Yuvraj a pie-chucker purely based on the fact that he knocked me over a couple of times and I didn’t want to tell the rest of the world that he was any good. He is that rubbish provider you play with. You think I am bigger than the other player and try and force yourself on the opposition and he comes back at you.”
Kevin Pietersen also talked about the bond he shares with the Indian all-rounder.
“I love Yuvi, he is a very very close friend and I loved the way he played. I loved everything about him and I still do. He is just a wonderful wonderful guy but the pie-chucker is something that was quite fun. Fun at that time and its still fun actually,” he concluded.
