Bet he didn’t see that coming.
Yesterday, Kevin Pietersen shared an old video of him on social media batting with a blindfold on before the 2010-11 Ashes
The former England international posted the video to help launch his new YouTube page, writing: “Good old days of just having fun!”
But in sharing the content, Pietersen copped a drive-by from an unlikely source.
“Should have batted with that (blindfold) on more often,” commented Australia’s 2019 Ashes saviour, Steve Smith.
In the video, Pietersen faces up to a bowling machine sending down rockets while he has his face covered with a black blindfold.
The viewer is then led to believe that Pietersen repeatedly makes immaculate connection with the ball that he sends into a nearby house.
As entertaining — and probably fake — as the video is, Pietersen still copped the whack from Smith.
To be fair, the England legend did have a ripping reply.
“It felt like I was batting blindfolded when I kept smacking you lot for 10 years!”
