Well, for the unversed, the ‘pie chucker’ thing started, during a Test series in India in 2008, KP had stirred a storm when he called Yuvraj Singh a ‘pie-chucker’ after getting dismissed to the left-arm pacer. Not just this, KP even went on to say that Yuvraj had bowled ‘left-arm filth’. He had said:
“When the ball is swinging and seaming and you’ve got a guy like Zaheer Khan, who is one of the best bowlers I’ve ever faced, not bowling at you and you’ve got a pie-chucker like Yuvraj Singh bowling at you I really don’t mind. When you get left-arm filth like that it makes you feel really good,”
Yuvraj Singh didn’t hold back as he responded to KP’s remarks by saying that he liked the name given to him. He replied:
“It shows KP hates getting out to me and if a useless bowler is getting him out five times then I would say that is quite useless batting,”
