Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen, who was a part of the broadcasting team for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, is currently in Maldives along with several other players and supporting staff members, serving the mandatory quarantine period before heading back home.
Taking to his official Twitter handle, Pietersen recently posted a shirtless picture of himself from the Maldives.
Captioning the photo, the 40-year-old wrote, “THE RED LIST.”
While many fans liked Pietersen’s six-pack abs look, it was Chris Gayle‘s comment which stole the limelight.
The West Indian stalwart was quick to troll the Englishman for his physique.
Reacting to Pietersen’s tweet, Gayle wrote, “Believe me ppl…he’s sucking in the tummy – it’s actually worst in person.. you’re the Red list @KP24.. he’s younger than me too!!”
The hilarious exchange between Gayle and Pietersen on the micro-blogging platform left everyone in splits.
Notably, the Universe Boss was last seen in action during the 14th edition of IPL before the tournament was suspended amid COVID-19 crisis.
Playing for the Punjab Kings, Gayle smashed 178 runs from 8 matches at an average of 25.42 and a strike rate of 133.83.
The KL Rahul-led side had a topsy-turvy journey in the first leg of IPL 2021 as they won just three out of their eight games in the competition.
PBKS were placed at sixth position in the points table before the 14th season was called off.
