Former Indian cricket star Yuvraj Singh trolled fellow English cricketer Kevin Pietersen after Manchester United thrashed Chelsea 4-0 in their Premier League opening game on Sunday.
Pietersen, who is a die-hard Chelsea fan, is very active on social media site Twitter and constantly updates his followers and fans about the latest activity of the teams that he himself follows. However, on a rare occasion, Pietersen had nothing to say as Manchester United kept on scoring goal after another against Chelsea. Although Pietersen was understandably silent, it was a joyous occasion for Yuvraj Singh who supports Manchester United.
Yuvi could not keep his excitement to himself and posted a cheeky dig aimed at Kevin.
“Hey Mr @KP24 very quiet today all ok, @ManUtd,” he tweeted.

Notably, this was not the first occasion when the duo have had intense conversations regarding football matches. Earlier in the year, Pietersen had stated that Manchester United are the second-best in Premier League and that Manchester City are better than them.
“Bloody hell, by reading Twitter it would suggest that @ManUtd are winning the Premier League & just won the Champions League. They’re not even in the top 4 & you are the SECOND best team in Manchester! Will people just SHUT IT,” Pietersen had tweeted.
To this tweet, Yuvraj had replied, “You should be used to the media by now KP some kind of truth always hurts @ManUtd, go United”.
