Kevin Pietersen has already tweeted in Hindi. Even after retiring from cricket, he continues to come to India. Apart from commentating during the IPL, Pietersen also runs a campaign to save the rhino, under which he has also visited Kaziranga National Park in Assam. He also made a documentary there.
Apart from Pietersen, many foreign players also wished India on Independence Day. Australian opener David Warner, who made a lot of fans in India by playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL, is also included in this. “Happy Independence Day to our family and friends in India,” Warner wrote alongside the picture of the tricolour. Former Australia women’s team captain and Pune-born Lisa Sthalekar also extended her best wishes on the occasion. She wrote, ‘The more I travel to the country where I was born, the more I get to know about the times before and after independence.’
