    Ambati Rayadu and I were messing around: Kevin

    Banter has turned into an avalanche of abuse: Kevin

    My heart truly goes out to all RCB supporters: Rayadu

After the victory of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) final, former British batsman Kevin Peitersen and former Indian batsman Ambati Rayadu were involved in banter as the latter who had draped an orange suit in support of the Sunrisers Hyderabad changed to a blue jacket after the results. “I’ve at least held firm. I wore it and I owned it. You are a joker, always a joker,” Kevin Peitsersen said. This resulted in Rayadu being trolled on the internet. “Come on guys! This tribalism with/against Indian players on social media needs to slow down! Example – Ambati Rayadu and I were messing around after the IPL final and all of sudden that banter has turned into an avalanche of abuse towards Ambati. PLEASE stop it,” Kevin Pietersen stated on the microblogging site X (formerly known as Twitter). 

Rayadu is facing the brunt of trolls ever since he took a jibe at the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) after their defeat against the Rajasthan Royals (RR). “My heart truly goes out to all the rcb supporters who have passionately supported the team over the years. If only the management and the leaders had the team’s interests ahead of individual milestones .. rcb would have won multiple titles. Just remember how many fantastic players have been let go off. Force your management to bring players who will put teams interests first. A great new chapter can start from the mega auction,” Rayadu had remarked.
