Powered by Firework In cricket, the term ‘pie chucker’ is given to a bowler who fails to have any control over the delivery of the ball, and it created a major fallout between Yuvraj Singh and Kevin Pietersen back in 2008. It all started when the English batsman called the Team India all rounder a’ pie chucker’, taking a swift flak at the bowling performance of Yuvi. However, 12 years after the incident, both former cricketers are a long way from their past verbal feud, but Yuvraj still managed to pull off a hilarious jab at Pietersen on social media with a reference to the ‘pie chucker’ incident once again.Advertisement Image Courtesy: BCCI/WisdenIt all started when Kevin Pietersen shared a clip of his famous ‘switch hit’ on his official Instagram. The video of an incredible six against former New Zealand legend Scott Styris was captioned with “Just dealing with pies, @englandcricket. The original switch hits @kp24.” Check it out below-AN obvious throwback to his comment 12 years ago, Pietersen soon had Yuvraj in the comments, who pulled off a witty joke by saying  “Well sometimes u slip on those pies too” with a laughing emoji.Image Courtesy: InstagramThe comment got over 1100 likes, as fans fell about for Yuvi hilariously trolling his former adversary for sometimes biting the dust against the very ‘pie chucker’ all rounders.Even though the duo share a friendly bond these days, and was even recently seen together in a live session on Instagram, the comment from 2008 earned the former England international enough reprimand from Yuvraj’s fan base, for calling the Men in Blue icon a ‘left-arm filth’.“When the ball is swinging and seaming and you’ve got a guy like Zaheer Khan, who is one of the best bowlers I’ve ever faced, not bowling at you and you’ve got a pie-chucker like Yuvraj Singh bowling at you I really don’t mind. When you get left-arm filth like that it makes you feel really good,” Pietersen had said about the Indian left-arm pacer.“It shows KP hates getting out to me and if a useless bowler is getting him out five times then I would say that is quite useless batting,” Yuvraj had replied with a strong stance.However, the players since then have let bygones be bygones, but still make the pie chucker reference at each other in good sport.Also read-Indian Olympian stuck in Covid-19 hotspot Phuket – but safe!Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish in hospital after asymptomatic Covid-19 positive Advertisementlast_img
