Kevin Pietersen was one of the most stylish hitters to play for the England cricket team. The South African-born hitter played 104 Tests, 136 ODIs and 37 T20Is for England, scoring 8,181, 4,440 and 1,176 runs in the three formats respectively. Pietersen had also captained the England national team. He also played in the Indian Premier League (IPL), playing for many teams including Delhi Daredevils, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiants. He also participated in the Pakistan Super League for Quetta Gladiators and the Caribbean Premier League for St Lucia Zouks.
Pietersen is now a retired cricketer. He last played an international game in January 2014. Recently, the former England striker shared some videos of his son Dylan’s strike on Instagram with the caption: “Like father, like son… #Flamingo.”
Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh reacted to the video, commenting: “Wow! Same style”
However, in the next video Pietersen shared, he wrote, “Definitely NOT like father, like son! Dylan has a much better elbow than me!”
Many well-known personalities left a comment on Pietersen’s post, including Bollywood star Suniel Shetty, who wrote, “He’s gooooooooooood.”
Recently, Pietersen weighed in on Virat Kohli’s form, saying the Indian striker is in “that dark place” and one can just hope he finds his form as the game needs him to score points.
“I think he’s at this point and having been at this point in my career a few times, it’s not nice. It’s a very lonely place, especially when you have all eyes on you. Every thing is Kohli, Kohli and Kohli. He’s in that dark place, I just hope it ends quickly because the game needs him to score points,” Pietersen told Star Sports after the match between RCB and SRH.
