England’s all-time leading run scorer, Kevin Pietersen, posted this picture on social networking site Instagram today in celebrating of his 34th birthday. The image shows an 11-year-old Pietersen, before his move from South Africa to England.
Pietersen became the fastest batsman to reach both 1,000 and 2,000 runs in One Day International cricket, He has the second-highest run total from his first 25 Tests, behind only the Australian Sir Donald Bradman and was the fastest player, in terms of days, to reach 4,000, 5,000 and 7,000 Test runs.
He became only the third English batsman to top the ICC One Day International rankings, doing so in March 2007. In July 2008, after a century against South Africa, The Times called him “the most complete batsman in cricket” and in 2012 The Guardian called him “England’s greatest modern batsman”.
