Pietersen was recently in India for theIndian Premier League 2021, where he was one of the expert commentators for Star Sports during their coverage of the tournament. He returned to his home with the tournament being suspended all of sudden due to the rise in the number of coronavirus cases during the second wave.
I am still thinking about a country that has showered me with love: Kevin Pietersen
मैंने भारत छोड़ दिया हो सकता है, लेकिन मैं अभी भी ऐसे देश के बारे में सोच रहा हूँ जिसने मुझे बहुत प्यार और स्नेह दिया है। कृपया लोग सुरक्षित रहें। यह समय बीत जाएगा लेकिन आपको सावधान रहना होगा। 🙏🏽

On Tuesday, Pietersen wrote on his Twitter, how feels for the Indians. The country has been going through a severe healthcare crisis with close to 4 lakh new cases emerging every day throughout the country.

This translates to ‘I may have left Indian shores, but I am still thinking about a country that has showered me with lots of love and affection. Please stay safe. This too shall pass but you’ll have to be careful.”
