Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen on Saturday took to Twitter and posted a throwback picture with ex-India captain MS Dhoni. In the photo, Pietersen can be seen suggesting something to Dhoni.
“Hey, MSD, why don’t you put a fielder over there for me? Scoring runs against you guys is so easy,” Pietersen captioned the picture while taking a cheeky dig at Dhoni.

However, the Indian Premier League (IPL) side Chennai Super Kings (CSK), on Sunday, dropped a hilarious response to KP’s tweet.
The Chennai-based franchise posted a classic photo, showing off Dhoni’s lightning-fast stumping abilities and trolled back the former England international.
“But sometimes you don’t need fielders!”, CSK captioned the photo.

CSK’s savage reply won millions of hearts, grabbed a lot of attention on the platform and ended up receiving more retweets than Pietersen’s initial tweet.
Pietersen and Dhoni, much like other cricketers, are currently spending time at home as the world battles against the coronavirus pandemic.
Due to the ongoing health crisis, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has also suspended 13th season of the IPL for an indefinite time.
