Pune: Not just the slam-bang sixes, the Indian Premier League always brings a lot of exciting stuff, both on and off the field.
During the second match of IPL 2017 between Rising Pune Supergiant and Mumbai Indians, a hilarious incident unfolded when MS Dhoni decided to have a “go” at former IPL teammate and England batsman Kevin Pietersen.

It was Manoj Tiwary at first slip, who was on microphone, chatting with commentator Pietersen, when the former England captain said: “Manoj just tell MS that I am a better golfer than him.”
Tiwary was seen duly conveying the message to Dhoni after a delivery. “Pietersen kah raha hain woh aapse accha golfer hain (Pietersen is saying he is a better golfer than you).”
Dhoni leaned towards the microphone connected to Tiwary and replied with a straight face: “But you are still my only Test wicket!” Pietersen was seen laughing.
For the record, it was in reference to a few overs that Dhoni bowled during a Test match against England at Lord’s in 2011. Dhoni had trapped Pietersen leg before only to be overruled by the DRS.
