On Friday, former England captain Kevin Pietersen brought to Virat Kohli’s notice an ‘unreal’ talent, requesting the Indian captain to consider him in the squad.

The video posted by Pietersen shows a small kid, still in his diapers but wearing gloves, playing some exquisite lofted straight drives and cover drives. The same video was shared by former English cricketer Michael Vaughan a few days ago.

Asking Kohli to consider him for selection, Pietersen joked on Instagram, asking Kohli, “WHAT?!?!?!?!?! Get him in your squad, @virat.kohli! Can you pick him?” Equally impressed with the kid, Kohli replied, “Where’s he from??? He’s unreal.”
