London:

England batsman Kevin Pietersen played a chef to cook seekh kebabs for 25 Indian cricket fans who had one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dine with the player.

The 25 fortunates were winners of 'The Whyte and Mackay 13th man activation' contest, organised during the second edition of Indian Premier League in South Africa by Scottish alcoholic beverage producer Whyte and Mackay.

The fans met Pietersen, who is skipper of IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore, last Friday at the Cinnamon Club, one of the award-winning Indian restaurants here.

"The cricket fans from India spent nearly four hours with Kevin Pietersen, who enjoyed the meal with them. Before the dinner, Pietersen took the fans to the kitchen where he showed his culinary by making the spicy dish," head chef of Cinnamon Club Hari Nagarajan said on Thursday.

Besides the kebab, chicken tikka, kheer and gulab jamun were also in the menu, Nagarajan revealed.

"It was a great night as we enjoyed a great meal with some of India's cricket fans," Pietersen said.

Pietersen also had some conversation with the fans in Hindi he had picked up during his IPL stints with the liquor baron Vijay Mallya-won side.

"It was really exhilarating to see Pietersen in person and I enjoyed every moment of this visit," said Prashant Jalan, a winner from Mumbai.
