MS Dhoni and Kevin Pietersen’s banter on whether or not the England participant was his first Test wicket goes again to 2011.
This in reference to a Test match between India and England at Lord’s (21 July 2011).
Zaheer Khan was injured and Dhoni chipped in with a spell.
Nine balls into his spell Dhoni nearly received a nick from KP’s bat – Billy Bowden gave him out. However, Pietersen reviewed it and the choice was overruled.
This incident was as soon as once more introduced up in April 2017 throughout an IPL match between Rising Pune Supergiants vs Mumbai Indians.
This time Pietersen was contained in the commentary field speaking to Manoj Tiwary, who was fielding at slips. KP advised Tiwary to go and inform MS Dhoni that he (Pietersen) is a higher golfer than him.
When Tiwary did this after the subsequent ball, Dhoni responded saying, “He’s still my 1st test wicket.”

During Pietersen’s Instagram Live chat with Indian captain Virat Kohli on Friday, this debate got here up as soon as once more. This is the way it went-
KP: “A lot of people told me, I am Dhoni’s first test wicket. I referred it & I was given not out remember?”
Virat: “Yeah, I know. Look the thing is, MS has a point, It came up on the stump mics and nothing came on the hotspot so he has a point.”
KP: “Oh, you stop backing him”
Seems like this story will proceed to weave on for a very long time.
