Kevin Pietersen Wishes Jacques Kallis A Happy B'Day, Misses By A Mile
Kevin Pietersen never hesitates in entertaining his fans on social media with different types of unique and innovative strategies. Pietersen had earlier photoshopped himself in two images that were related to Bollywood movie songs. The former English skipper was also seen playing blindfolded cricket where he kept on hitting the ball out of the park. KP also shared an email of Rahul Dravid's advice on how to play spinners. Lately, the ex-cricketer had come forward to wish Jacques Kallis on his birthday. However, it seems that Kevin Pietersen made a blunder and ended up posting Kallis' wrong age.
Pietersen's brain fade moment
Jack Kallis had turned 44 on October 16. Wishes poured in for the iconic all-rounder from all corners including the fans and the cricketing fraternity. Among them was KP but he made a huge mess of it on social media when he wished Kallis a happy 53rd birthday. Read Pietersen's tweet here.
The greatest cricketer of them all turns 53 today. Happy birthday, @jacqueskallis75. ❤️— Kevin Pietersen🦏 (@KP24) October 16, 2019
However, KP's blunder was spotted by the fans and they came forward to troll the former English batsman. Here are some of the reactions.

The illustrious career of Kallis
One of the most terrifying all-rounders of all-time, South Africa's Jacques Kallis will always be remembered for his ability to swing the game away from the opposition, both with the bat and the ball. The former Proteas all-rounder, who retired in 2014 from both ODI and Test formats of the game, has amassed 13289 runs from 1676 Test matches and 11529 runs from 328 ODI games, in the span of his 18-year long international career. Jacques Kallis was an important factor of South Africa's bowling attack and has 292 Test wickets and 273 ODI wickets to his name. Jacques Kallis is the fifth batsman with the most number of centuries in the game (62). With over 19,000 runs in the First Class and List A games, Jacques Kallis went on to become one of South Africa's greatest cricketers. The splendid all-rounder had 338 catches to his name - 200 Test catches, 131 ODI catches and 7 T20 grabs. Jacques Kallis has seen the South African side through its highs and lows and has often been their saviour, batting at the top of the order in an explosive fashion while also rattling the batting line-up of the opposition with his sheer pace.
