Kevin Pietersen is captaining the England Legends team in the 2021 edition of the action-packed Road Safety World Series.  The full-time cricket pundit(known for his cricketing analysis post his international retirement) smashed the India Legnegs led by Sachin Tendulkar.

Fans applauded Pietersen and were convinced that he should come out of retirement to feature in the England national team against Team India.

“At this rate, @KP24 could be playing the first T20 in Ahmedabad,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “Kevin Pietersen is still better than many of England present players,” another Twitter user said in a tweet.

For India Legends, Yusuf Pathan was the best bowler on display. He picked up three wickets. Irfan Pathan and Munaf Patel also chipped in with a couple of wickets apiece.

While chasing a target of 189 the hosts were in trouble at 18 for three in the fourth over. India Legends have lost Virender Sehwag , Mohammed Kaif, and Sachin Tendulkar early. But a brilliant partnership between Irfan Pathan (61 not out off 34 balls) and Manpreet Gony(35 not out off 16 balls). Despite their late fireworks, India Legends lost by five runs.
