Kevin Pietersen shows off his Hindi and India couldn’t keep calmSharannyo Basu 2018-04-04
Recently it came out that the one-horned rhino population at the Kaziranga National Park in Assam has risen by 12 individuals. Considering how this Unesco World Heritage Site houses two-thirds of the world population of this species, this is brilliant news. And Pietersen was thrilled to hear that.
English Cricket legend Kevin Pietersen posted a heartfelt message written in Hindi in lieu of the increase of Rhino population in the Kaziranga National Park in Assam.
Kevin Pietersen, who has been working extensively towards saving rhinos from extinction, took to Twitter to celebrate the news. What blew everyone away, was that his tweet was in shudh Hindi! Pietersen has had stints at the commentary box in the IPL and a few Indian Cricket series. And his Hindi skills may well have come from his learning experience then.
Fans took to Twitter to applaud him for his proficiency in Hindi. Some called him “native Indian” while some pleaded him to stay in India forever.There were some who also compared him to Bollywood stalwart Amitabh Bachchan’s delivery of a speech. While his tweets have received thousands of retweets, other social platforms have also been flooded with his post.
Pietersen is well known for his mass contributions to English cricket. He was the main man in the transition period from the Nassr Hussains to the Joe Roots. He has amassed more than 20,000 runs in his glorious career and has a worldwide recognition due to his game and personality. Pietersen has achieved many trophies in his career with the Ashes triumph in 2005 being his biggest highlight. He also has a T20 world cup under his belt as well.
