Chris Gayle mercilessly trolls Kevin Pietersen after the latter shows off his body in a ‘shirtless’ pic

West Indies‘ explosive batsman Chris Gayle is known for smashing humungous sixes and sending the white leather out of cricket grounds. The ‘Universe Boss’ is also famous for his antics and never misses an opportunity to provide his fans with a dose of entertainment both on and off the field.

The Jamaican superstar gave a glimpse of his side-spilling nature when he trolled former England stroke maker Kevin Pietersen on social media. It all happened after Pietersen shared a picture on Twitter of himself enjoying on a beach in the Maldives.

The former English cricketer and some other overseas players, along with the Australian contingent, are staying in the Maldives after the postponement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 last week.

In the picture shared by Pietersen, he could be seen flaunting his abs and giving a thumbs up to the camera. Many fans were left in awe as they lauded the 40-year-old for being supremely fit post-retirement.

However, Gayle did not look impressed with Pietersen’s sculpted physique as he dropped a cheeky comment to poke fun at the cricketer-turned-commentator. While replying to the tweet, the Kingston-lad claimed that Pietersen was sucking in his stomach to enhance his physique.

“Believe me ppl… he’s sucking in the tummy – it’s actually worst in a person. You’re on the Red list, @KP24. He’s younger than me too!!” Gayle wrote on the micro-blogging website.

Later, Pietersen deleted his tweet. Here is the screenshot:

Pietersen, who was part of the broadcasting team for IPL 2021, recently suggested that the remainder of the fourteenth season should be completed in the United Kingdom (UK). He reckoned that September would be the perfect time to stage the remaining matches of IPL.

“I have seen people talking about the UAE as a possible destination to finish the IPL in September, but I actually think the IPL should move to the UK,” Pietersen wrote in his column for Betway.

“There is a window in September after the England vs India Test series has finished. All the best Indian players would already be there, and all of the best English players would be available as well,” he added.

Pakistan win the second Test against Zimbabwe to seal the series 2-0

In a two-match Test series against Zimbabwe, Pakistan, having won the first Test, came out victorious by an innings and 147 runs in the second.

The Test lasted only four days, with Shaheen Afridi and Nauman Ali taking five wickets apiece in the second innings. The hosts, following on, were bundled out for a total of 231 runs. Wicket-keeper Regis Chakabva being the stand out batsman making 80 runs, while the skipper Brendon Taylor was the second-highest scorer for the team with 49 runs.

In the first innings, Nauman outshined the home team taking five wickets and this was the first time in the history of Pakistan cricket that three bowlers took a 5-fer in a single Test.

The three Alis, Abid, Azhar and Nauman were the stars with the bat for Pakistan as they helped tourists post a mammoth 510/8 in the first innings. Abid dominated with unbeaten marathon innings of 215. Azhar was the other centurion scoring 126, while Nauman missed out on his maiden hundred by three wins.

In reply, Zimbabwe were bundled out at a sub-par score of 132, Chakabva being the highest scorer with 33 runs.

It was yet another dominating performance from Pakistan, which saw plenty of individual brilliance.

The absence of senior players – Sean Williams, Craig Ervine and Sikandar Raza – was severely felt as Zimbabwe managed to surpass 200 just once this series. Babar Azam’s men, on the other hand, ended a successful African tour with back-to-back innings wins.

The Pakistan captain, in the post-match presentation, was happy with the way his team performed.

“The partnership between Abid Ali and Azhar was crucial. In the end, it was an outstanding performance from Nauman too. The way Abid showed character was good to see, he’s worked really hard. It’s a good sign to see the openers performing,” Azam said.

Though Zimbabwe lost, the captain was hopeful as their side was still very young at the international level.

He stated, “I can’t fault the guys’s effort, it’s a young side, full of enthusiasm and wanting to get better day by day. That side, I am proud of it.”

It was Pakistan’s fourth consecutive series victory on a seven week-long southern Africa tour. They beat South Africa 2-1 in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 3-1 in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) before defeating Zimbabwe 2-1 in a T20 series, and 2-0 in the Test leg.
