Responding to former English cricketer Kevin Pietersen’s question, former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir on Thursday reacted with a sarcastic jibe. A curious Pietersen posed a question to Gambhir about why he does not smile.

The former left-handed opening batsman used a picture from England’s tour of India in 2008, where the Indian team is celebrating the wicket of the Englishman after he is dismissed by Yuvraj Singh.

The banter started when Star Sports announced a session of #AskStar where they have asked fans to hurl questions towards Gambhir, Pietersen and Danny Morrison.

Pietersen tweeted: “Can we get GG to smile?”

To this Gambhir replied: “Well #legend guess u forgot!!! You have given me many reasons to smile. One of them came in December 2008 in Chennai. I think the scoreboard read Kevin Pietersen lbw b a certain #piechucker Yuvraj Singh.”

Meanwhile, amid the coronavirus lockdown, both Gambhir and Pietersen have used their star-power to spread awareness among the citizens by urging them to stay indoors and maintain social distancing and avoid gatherings.
