England’s former batsman Kevin Pietersen and India’s talisman Yuvraj Singh were engaged in a sweet little banter on Twitter. Pietersen took to the social media platform to share his disgust on Twitter users, who are praising Manchester United. The former combative batsman said the people are suggesting that ManU is going to be English Premier League (EPL) champions.

In fact, Pietersen said the fans are behaving as if Manchester United has just won the Champions League. Furthermore, currently, the club is not even in top four as they are placed at the sixth position in EPL.

On the other hand, Yuvraj Singh, who is a big Manchester United fan tried to pull Kevin Pietersen’s leg. Yuvraj told KP that he should be familiar with the media.

Subsequently, the former England batsman asked Yuvraj who is the best team in Manchester. Yuvraj Singh once again came with a sarcastic reply and asked Pietersen whether he is asking about present or on the basis of the overall record.

Pietersen then said that he likes to live in the present as Manchester City is the second position in EPL standings. Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh and Kevin Pietersen share a great camaraderie with each other as both of them played together for the Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals).

Manchester City is the defending champions of the EPL and has won the title on three occasions. On the other hand, Manchester United have clinched the coveted trophy on record 20 times, which is the most by any club.

Here is how the conversation fared out between Yuvraj Singh and Kevin Pietersen:
