Kevin Pietersen posted a cryptic tweet and questioned if it was necessary to ‘announce it to the world’ when a person gets infected with COVID-19. The former England cricketer took to Twitter and asked why people announce on Twitter they have tested COVID-19 positive. Yuvraj Singh commented on Pietersen’s post and asked how he suddenly thought of that today (March 27) and not before. Interestingly, Pietersen’s post was shared just hours after Sachin Tendulkar informed his fans and followers on Twitter that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and that he was isolating at home. Sachin Tendulkar Tests Positive for COVID-19; Actor Abhishek Bachchan, Union Minister Pralhad Joshi Join Fans in Wishing Him Swift Recovery.

“Can someone please tell me, why you need to announce it to the world, that you have Covid?!” Pietersen wrote on Twitter. Yuvraj Singh immediately responded to the tweet and asked the England cricketer how come he suddenly had that thought. “And how come you thought of this today and not before?” Yuvraj commented on Pietersen’s post and asked him. Yuvraj later revealed in a separate comment that he was just pulling Pietersen’s leg and teasing him.

Pietersen didn't take long in responding to Yuvraj Singh. Extending the conversation, Pietersen said that he 'just' came to know about Tendulkar contracting the virus, and he also sent a speedy recovery message to the Master Blaster. "Just seen Sachin has it! Oops! Sorry @sachin_rt, get better soon buddy!" he commented. While numerous fans, including Yuvraj Singh, assumed that the former England captain took a dig at Tendulkar, his response to Yuvraj reflects that he didn't about the legendary Indian cricketer testing positive for COVID-19.

"I have been testing myself and taking all the recommended precautions to ensure Covid is kept at bay. However, I've tested positive today following mild symptoms. All others at home have tested negative,” Sachin said in his statement.
