The spat had begun back in 2008 series when Pietersen had called Yuvraj 'left-arm filth' after the latter had dismissed him in the Test contest. 

"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," Pietersen had said.

Yuvraj responded saying, "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."
