Kevin Pietersen shares special two-word X-post for Shubman Gill after latter scored century against England



Shubman Gill’s century in the second innings of the Vizag Test against England seemed to make former England skipper Kevin Pietersen happy more than anyone else. Notably, it was just a few days back, that Pietersen backed Gill following an all-sided criticism for the latter for his dismal run of form in the last 3 Test innings against England.

“Kallis averaged 22 in his first 10 Tests and turned out to be arguably the greatest player to play the game. Give Shubman Gill time to find it, please. He’s a serious player!” wrote Pietersen in his X-post (formerly Twitter) on the first day of the ongoing second Test between India and England.

Now, the former England batting stalwart has come again with another special two-word X-post for Shubman Gill. KP reshared his old post and wrote “Thank You, Shubman Gill.”
