Virat Kohli has had a sublime touch in the five-game test series against England. Even though England won the series by taking an irreproachable 3-1 lead, Virat Kohli has grabbed public attention with his batting. The captain of India is currently the most active of the series with 544 races under his belt, including two centuries and three fifties. The victory of England in Southampton has turned the fifth and last test into a mere formality. However, that did not stop former England hitter Kevin Pietersen from heading to The Oval. He will not go there to cheer the hosts, as many would expect, but to see "the best in this era" do what he does best: score runs.
England at the start of Day 2 was 198 for seven and it is more than likely that Kohli batted on Saturday and Pietersen had a special request for the Indian skipper.
"On my way to The Oval and I'm requesting a clinic from @imVkohli please?
Thanks brother! There's nothing better than seeing the best in this era doing their thing! ", Said Tweet of Peitersen.
