How hilarious was it that Kevin Pietersen, the guy who takes the mickey out of Yuvraj Singh for being a 'pie-chucker' all the time on Twitter, was dismissed by the left-arm spinner in a tour match?

How hilarious was it that Kevin Pietersen, the guy who takes the mickey out of Yuvraj Singh for being a 'pie-chucker' all the time on Twitter, was dismissed by the left-arm spinner in a tour match?

Very hilarious, that's how. And so, for getting rid of KP in his comeback innings for just 23, and for taking four other wickets against England for India A, Yuvraj gets our Player of the Week award.

Mr Singh is one of those player you'd be hard-pressed to leave out of the side, even though at the moment he's not the fittest bloke on the park. He's carrying a few extra unchucked pies around the middle, but he's a game-changer, with both bat and ball.

In the first innings of the three-day game, which ended in an inevitable draw, Yuvraj scored 59 of 80 balls, before being stumped by Matt Prior off Graeme Swann. In that knock he struck seven boundaries and four sixes, going about his business as though it were an ODI.

He then took the ball in hand and showed England how scared they should be for the Test series. He's a good bowler, but he's not Ravi Ashwin or Pragyan Ojha, and yet he took the Brits to pieces.

Aside from KP (who played well for his 23, to be fair), he removed Prior, Ian Bell, Samit Patel (who was on 104 at the time) and James Anderson. As for his stamina, he sent down the most overs of the Indian bowlers, 26.5 to be precise, and only went at 3.5 to the over.

Honourable mention this week goes to England skipper Alastair Cook, for his 119, as well as dealing well with the KP-induced spotlight. There was a lot of attention paid to their every interaction, but Cook stayed calm and smiley, and made sure his bat did the talking.
