Former England Captain Kevin Pietersen had smashed a quick-fire half century against India Legends in a Road Safety World Series & helped England Legends to seal a six runs spectacular win.
After the match, Pietersen took to instagram to share an image with the England Legends team while taking a hilarious dig at England selectors. “So England CAN beat India in India! How cool was that game? England selectors – we’re all available,” Pietersen captioned the picture. On the third day of the 4th test between India & England, Pietersen appealed the young England batsmen to bat well once & find their rhythm after struggling for scoring runs throughout the Test Series.
In the Road Safety World Series Match, Pietersen not only took the spinners to the cleaners but led his team to a win over the Indian team. In the match on the basis of Pietersen’s 75 runs off 37 balls England Legends put up a score of 188 runs for seven wickets down in allotted 20 overs. For India Legends Yusuf & Irfan Pathan were the star performers with the ball. Irfan was economical in his four overs stint & picked up two wickets while Yusuf bowled three overs & scalped three wickets.
Virender Sehwag & Sachin Tendulkar failed to impress with the bat but Irfan Pathan kept the hosts in the chase with an unbeaten half century. He was well supported by Yuvraj Singh & Yusuf Pathan. A Cameo from Manpreet Goni towards the end made things interesting but the need of 19 runs off last over, the hosts fell short of six runs to reach the target.
