Former England captain Kevin Pietersen met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Pietersen has been invited to the Raisina Dialogue event in Delhi and had earlier met Home Minister Amit Shah. “An honor to speak so passionately and warmly about the release of cheetahs on your birthday, Sir @narendramodi. Thank you for your infectious smile and firm handshake. I really look forward to seeing you again, Sir!” Former England captain Kevin Pietersen said this in a tweet on Friday.

Twelve cheetahs from South Africa landed at the Gwalior airport in Madhya Pradesh last month. The Big Cat made its journey in a C-17 Globemaster cargo aircraft of the Indian Air Force. From there they will be taken to their new home which is The Kuno National Park in the state of Madhya Pradesh.

After the relocation of 12 cheetahs to Kuno, the total number of big cats in the national park has risen to 20. South African cheetahs are now in quarantine.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday welcomed a new batch of 12 cheetahs at Kuno National Park.

Peterson also plays an active role in saving and protecting wildlife and is working on a project in Africa to save rhinos.

Pietersen had an illustrious career as a cricketer in which he played 104 Tests, 136 ODIs and 37 T20Is for England. In Test cricket, he scored 8181 runs at an average of 47.29. KP ended with 4440 runs and 1176 runs in ODIs and T20Is respectively. Not to forget, Tabeez played 36 matches in IPL, scoring 1001 runs.
