After England international, Ben Stokes trolled Kevin Pietersen over his ‘country over club’ comments regarding Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes leaving IPL finals for international commitments, Joe Root and Jos Buttler have taken to Instagram to troll Kevin now.
Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler were always aware of the fact that even if their respective teams, Rising Pune Supergiant and Mumbai Indians qualified for the finals, they’d have to leave that to join the English camp in Spain, who are undergoing a training camp in preparation for all the all-important Champions Trophy at home, starting June 1st. Kevin Pietersen is someone who’s always opposed to English players not playing enough IPL but off-late, Andrew Strauss who is England Cricket Board’s chairman, has relaxed especially since England’s failure in the 2015 World Cup. The likes of Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler had played the entire season last year and with Jason Roy and Ben Stokes making their debut this year with a heavy pay, things are only looking good for English cricket in limited overs format.
Kevin Pietersen had earlier vented out his frustration on Twitter.
