Kevin Pietersen slams Donald Trump: The former English cricketer took a dig at the US President for mispronouncing names.
US President Donald Trump’s attempt of giving references of legendary Indian cricketers such as Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli in his speech at the Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad has put him in hot water across social media platforms.
Trump, who ended up mispronouncing the names of both the cricketers, received severe criticism regarding lack of research on his part before his speech. Even International Cricket Council took to their Twitter account to take a dig at Trump regarding the same matter.
