Former English batsman Kevin Pietersen had praised Australia pace bowler Pat Cummins during the ongoing fourth test match between Australia and South Africa.
The hosts Proteas had won the toss and elected to bat first, and they are in a commanding position during the day’s play.
However, Cummins looked a class apart on the Wanderers as he continued to unsettle batsmen during his spell.
This has prompted Kevin Pietersen to go over to his twitter account and send his praises to the talented young pacer, who endured a difficult career with many injuries over the past couple of years.
His tweet read: “I love @patcummins30 the cricketer! ????????????”
I love @patcummins30 the cricketer!

Pat Cummins has been the leader of the Aussie attack as Mitchell Starc got injured ahead of the fourth test match and was subsequently removed from the starting lineup. He will also be missing this edition of IPL, which is a huge blow to KKR.
The series had been enthralling since the start, but things went out of hand when Australia were caught in ball tampering scandal. The event had made sure that the series was highlighted for all the wrong reasons instead of proper cricket.
Aussie fans and close followers were happy with the progress of Pat Cummins as they feel that the young pacer would be at his best if he remains injury free. The 24-year old will be playing for Mumbai Indians and will be keen to leave an impression on the tournament this year. Kevin Pietersen has been active on Twitter recently.
