Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen, who is very much active on social media, on Wednesday replied to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s tweet where he wished Pakistan PM Imran Khan a speedy recovery from Covid-19. Pietersen said that it would be a dream come true to see India and Pakistan engage both on and off the field.

Pietersen wrote that PM Modi’s gesture made him smile, ” We all need each other and this year has shown us that”.

“This tweet by @narendramodi to @ImranKhanPTI made me smile! It would be a dream come true, to see India & Pak reunited and engaging both on & off the field! We all need each other & this year has shown us that!” Pietersen tweeted.

“Let’s all hope a healthy friendship is on its way!”

Both India and Pakistan have not engaged in any bilateral cricketing series since 2013. Though the teams have locked horns on a few occasions in multi-team tournaments like the World Cup, Champions Trophy, and Asia Cup, the talks of them engaging in bilateral contests have never materialised.
