Kevin Pietersen, Harsha Bhogle


Former English cricketer Kevin Pietersen and Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle discussed the switch-hitting. The duo had contrasting views and their banter began during Day 3 of the ongoing first Test match between India and England.

England I had a great outing on Day 3 with the bat, especially with Ollie Pope making a magnificent century. The visiting batsmen took many sweeps and traded hits in their innings. Reacting to the same, Kevin Pietersen and Harsha Bhogle got into a conversation.

Kevin Pietersen, however, did not shy away from lashing out at Harsha Bhogle. He joked on air that the Indian commentator was talking nonsense. He said: “It’s 3:25 local time and I’m going downstairs because you’re talking nonsense.”

The jokes, however, did not stop there, as after the match, Kevin Pietersen continued pushing Harsha Bhogle. While responding to a fan who highlighted the former England cricketer’s comments on Harsha Bhogle, he claimed that the Indian commentator was talking rubbish.

This did not sit well with Harsha Bhogle, who then brutally responded to Kevin Pietersen for his comments. He, while calling the former England cricketer’s comments nonsense, explained his point and tweeted:

“Absolute nonsense! If you want to change strokes, allow a bowler to bowl with both hands. Just because something is difficult does not make it acceptable. The pitcher has to inform the umpire if he wants to pitch left-handed, the batter must have the same condition. Let the debate continue.”

Responding to this, the former England cricketer went a step ahead and challenged him to settle the debate. Kevin Pietersen said he wants to resolve it by having a fight with Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle.

Pope Brilliant: Kevin Pietersen praises Ollie Pope for his magnificent ton

Ollie Pope has been one of the main reasons why England had a successful day in the ongoing Test against India. The right-hander played one of the foreign batsman’s best innings in Indian conditions and ensured that his team took a 100-plus lead, which at one point did not seem possible, especially after England lost quick wickets in the middle. .

Ollie Pope remained unbeaten on 148 runs as England finished Day 3 on 316/6. He would hope to bring his team closer to a 200-run lead and give the players something to defend.

Kevin Pietersen praised Ollie Pope’s amazing innings and called his knock brilliant. On his Twitter account he said: “BRILLIANT POTATO”

Kevin Pietersen also praised the type of cricket that both India and England have played in the ongoing matches. He believes the match will be heading towards a close finish. The visitors are 126 runs ahead and still have 4 wickets in hand. He added:

“If you are a lover of Test cricket, it doesn’t matter if you are English or Indian, we should all love the fact that England have an advantage and hopefully tomorrow we will have a close finish.”
