For the uninitiated, it was Pietersen who gave the Indian southpaw his famous name of “pie chucker” for his unconventional style of bowling. During an Instagram live session with Pietersen, Yuvraj had revealed that he continues to use an Email ID which he made after he called him a “pie chucker” during their playing days.
Talking about the word pie-chucker, Yuvraj told Pietersen, “My email address still has the word ”pie chucker” in it, I laughed so much when you described me as a pie chucker for my bowling style. I made an email id and included the word pie chucker in that and it is my favorite email address. Sometimes, even my friends go like, hey how are you pie chucker.”
Both of them have also pulled each other’s legs over their favorites football clubs. While the Indian southpaw is a Manchester United fan, Pietersen is a long-time admirer of West London club Chelsea.
