Kevin Pietersen Trolls Joe Root With Hilarious Picture

Kevin Pietersen poked fun at current England captain Joe Root by posting a hilarious picture on his Twitter handle.

Former England skipper Kevin Pietersen, who is currently in Australia, for the commentary during the ongoing Ashes 2017 series between England and Australia, was mercilessly trolled by Twiterrati on Monday.

Pietersen, who is in exile from England team after 2013’s Ashes debacle in Australia, posted a photo of current England skipper Joe Root with a toy gun on his official Twitter handle and captioned it “Captain Fantastic”.

Pietersen posted a morphed picture of Root holding a water pistol and captioned it: “Captain Fantastic”.

That led to some angry fans taking on Pietersen for his lack of respect for the English skipper.

Showers and overnight water damage to the pitch prevented any play in the first session, raising England’s hopes of remaining alive in the series.

Australia need just six more wickets to reclaim the Ashes.

A draw would mean England can still retain the Ashes with wins in the last two Tests in Melbourne and Sydney.

England were 132 for four, trailing by 127 runs with Dawid Malan on 28 and Jonny Bairstow on 14.

Strong winds and heavy showers lashed Perth on Sunday night and continued on Monday morning, but the main concern was a damp patch just outside the popping crease at the southern end of the ground.

The reason for the damage was unclear, although there was speculation it might have been linked to strong winds lifting the covers.
