Rubbing salt into wounds: India, remember I had warned you, Kevin Pietersen tweets

Kevin Pieterson had earlier praised India for their historic series win in Australia while reminding them that they still have to face England at home

Former England skipper Kevin Pietersen pointed out a tongue-in-cheek warning he gave to the hosts through a Hindi tweet before the England series, rubbing salt into host India's wounds after they lost the first Test by 227 runs at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

"India, yaad hai maine pehele hi chetawani di thi ke itna jasn na manaye jab aapne Australia ko unke ghar pe haraya tha (India, remember I had warned you earlier to not celebrate so much when you had beaten Australia at home)" Pietersen tweeted in Hindi.

The former English batsman had earlier praised India for their historic series win in Australia while reminding them that they still have to face England at home.

"India - yeh aitihaasik jeet ka jashn manaye kyuki yeh sabhi baadhao ke khilaap hasil hui hai. LEKIN, ASLI TEAM toh kuch hafto baad a rahi hai jisse aapko harana hoga apne ghar mein. Satark rahe, 2 saptaah mein bahut adhik jashn manaane se saavadhaan rahen (India, celebrate this win because it came against all odds. But, the real team is coming in a few weeks whom you have to beat at home. Be alert, refrain yourself from celebrating too much in the next two weeks)," Pietersen had tweet in January.

India were bundled by England for 192 chasing a target of 420. The visitors lead the four-match Test series 1-0. The second Test will be played in Chennai from Saturday.

Meanwhile, he also heaped praise on England pacer James Anderson who bagged three wickets against India in the second innings.
