Former England Batsman Kevin Pietersen has posted another message in Hindi on Twitter following India’s loss against England in the first Test at the M.A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Indian team who were deemed favorites to win the opening Test match in Chennai suffered a defeat in their own backyard by the English side as they beat them 277 runs on Day 5.
Few days prior to the first Test, Kevin Pietersen had put out a tweet in Hindi asking the Indians to not to over celebrate the Australian series victory since the real test will be against England when they tour India. Incidentally, the hosts got a glaring reception once they landed in India from Australia where they defeated the Aussies 2-1 after going 1-0 down in Adelaide.
“Satark rahe, 2 saptaah mein bahut adhik jashn manaane se saavadhaan rahen (Stay alert and don’t over-celebrate in these two weeks),” said the former England captain.
‘Yaad hai maine pehele hi chetawani di thi’ – Kevin Pietersen
Following India’s loss in the first Test, Kevin Pietersen yet again tweeted in Hindi about the warning he had passed on prior to the start of the first Test. Pietersen reminded the Indians that he had earlier warned about over celebrating the series win Australia.
“India , yaad hai maine pehele hi chetawani di thi ke itna jasn na manaye jab aapne Australia ko unke ghar pe haraya that” ( India, Remember I had warned you to not over celebrate after winning the series against Australia in Australia), tweeted Kevin Pietersen following India’s loss.
India , yaad hai maine pehele hi chetawani di thi ke itna jasn na manaye jab aapne Australia ko unke ghar pe haraya tha ????

India will now take on England in the 2nd Test which will take place at the same venue as the first Test in Chennai. Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel who missed the first Test due to an injury he picked up prior to the game are likely to be included in the playing XI while Shahbaz Nadeem was not at his best after bowling over 10 no-balls in the game might face the axe.
