Gautam Gambhir and Kevin Pietersen are poles apart when it comes to their personality. While the southpaw comes across as driven and intense, KP is more extemporaneous and full of life. However, both have certain similarities also. Both these champion cricketers stood up for their team when it mattered the most.
While the Delhi batsman played the most important role in both the WC final wins in 2007 and 2011, KP was the man of the tournament in the 2010 WT20 win for England. Both cricketers couldn’t get the graceful exit they deserved as Gambhir lost form and didn’t share the best relation with Dhoni, while the former England skipper fell out with Strauss.
Pietersen and Gambhir are involved with broadcast giant Star and on Twitter, the channel posted a promotional picture. In the picture, as expected, the South African was beaming with a smile while the Delhi lad was devoid of one. This led to KP trying to troll GG, but not one to take things lying down, Gambhir gave it back with interest, reminding the right-hander about his struggles against a pie chucker (Yuvraj Singh).

Can we get GG to smile?
