Former England captain Kevin Pietersen is a popular figure among Indian fans. During his early years in international cricket itself, the cricketer gained a massive fan following in India for his many match-winning adventures for England and in several Indian Premier League (IPL) matches. Pietersen recently took to Twitter and posted a message for his Indian fans. Due to the ongoing crisis caused by the highly contagious coronavirus, he urged people to stay at their homes. However, much to the delight of the fans, the cricketer posted his entire tweet in perfect Hindi.
Namaste india 🙏 hum sab corona virus ko harane mein ek saath hai , hum sab apne apne sarkar ki baat ka nirdes kare aur ghar me kuch Dino ke liye rahe , yeh samay hai hosiyaar rahene ka .App sabhi ko der sara pyaar 💕— Kevin Pietersen🦏 (@KP24) March 20, 2020
My Hindi teacher - @shreevats1 🙏🏻
In the tweet itself, Kevin Pietersen credited his former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammate Shreevats Goswami for the crucial Hindi lessons. Even Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty took note of the tweet and responded the cricketer’s valuable lessons on coronavirus with a “thank you”. While his tweet created enough buzz among the Indian fans, the former English batsman once again framed a perfect Hindi sentence while responding to a fan’s query.
