LONDON: England's star batsman Kevin Pietersen has named old foe Yuvraj Singh as India's 'danger man' in the forthcoming one-day series. 

Pietersen labelled the 2011 World Cup winner a 'pie-chucker', despite being dismissed by his left-arm spinners four times in one-dayers, more than any other bowler. 

Speaking at an event in Delhi, he said that Yuvraj is the most destructive batsman in the Indian line-up, the Sun reports. 

According to the report, it will be Yuvraj's powerful batting which Pietersen fears the most when the two sides lock horns over the five-match series, starting in Rajkot on Friday.
