Pietersen responds to Akhter’s tweet

Ahead of the match between Pakistan and England on June 3rd, former Pakistan fast bowler, Shoaib Akhter got involved in a friendly banter with the former England batsman Kevin Pietersen while urging the Pakistan Cricket team to come-back stronger in the next matches.

Akhter was disappointed with the loss of Pakistan against the West Indies in their first match in the World Cup. As a result, he urged the Pakistan team to fight for the badge in his tweet.

However, the picture of him “chicken” dancing around Pietersen after he [Shoaib] took Pietersen's wicket in a test match, caught the attention of the former English captain.

The caption read: “Blood, sweat, aggression, racing heartbeat, badmaashi. This is whats required when you represent your country. This star on your chest is your pride guys. Tagra khelo. Go get them. Larr jao.”



Pietersen had a very witty reply to Akhter’s tweet where he [Pietersen] reminded Akhter of the hundred he had scored before the wicket.

 “Can’t argue with that tweet buddy as you are celebrating after I smacked you all over for a 100,” said Pietersen and concluded his tweet with a smiley, saying, ‘What a passion.”

Pietersen’s ton reminder couldn’t bowl Akhtar out who replied, “Mate you were a true force to reckon with.” “… but loved my chicken dance after getting you out,” reciprocated the former bowler.
