MUMBAI: Kevin Pietersen, whose heroic knock of 186 played a huge part in England's thumping 10-wicket victory against India in the second Test, has a few good words to say about the Mumbai crowd.
Pietersen posted a message in hindi on his Twitter page to thank the crowd who gave him a standing ovation when he returned to the pavilion after his brilliant effort.
"Dono teams ko support dene ke liye shukriya! Main chahta hoon kolkata aur nagpur mein agle do tests ke liye bhi aisa hi ho!", Pietersen said on his Twitter account.
"Test wins have to be celebrated! Mumbai is gonna get it tonight!", he said in another update.
Pietersen's teammate Matt Prior congratulated the dashing middle-order batsman. "Re integration' complete! Well played @kevinpp24" Prior wrote on Twitter.)
