Sad to leave India, tweets Pietersen

New Delhi, May 2: Delhi Daredevils batsman Kevin Pietersen left for England on Wednesday as he will get back to play international cricket later this month.

Pietersen, who was bought by Delhi this season for IPL 5, was in roaring form. The England batsman scored 305 runs from eight games. He also hit an unbeaten century (103 not out) in IPL 5.

England and West Indies are set to play a Test series starting from May 17, at Lord's. The teams play three Tests, three ODIs and one Twenty20 International. The tour ends on June 24.

The 31-year-old Pietersen played his last game on Tuesday night, against Rajasthan Royals. Delhi won by six wickets. Pietersen had made 36.

“Bye bye india .bohut acha laga india akar.” Pietersen (@kevinpp24) tweeted on Wednesday morning.

He also wrote that it was “sad day leaving India today.”

“Sad day leaving India today.. Will be back soon!! Special thanks to @DelhiDaredevils!! What an amazing squad of people!! Love you guys.”

“And another thank you to the people of India.. Yet another amazing trip!! Hospitality to die for!! You guys are incredible.. See you soon!!x” he added in another tweet.

Delhi will have another swashbuckling batsman to replace Pietersen. Australia opener David Warner is set to take his place in the playing XI for future games.
