Kevin Pietersen Lists His Top 3 Test Knocks Of All-Time

Pietersen had tweeted a video wherein he named his best Test knock so far. “Often asked my best innings – THIS ONE! Only cos I thought there was NO WAY I could bat for longer than an hour or 2 at most in the heat in SL! Therefore – a Test swing fest!” Pietersen captioned the tweet.

In a tweet, cricket columnist Ayaz Memon asked Pietersen, “Where would you rate your 186 v India at Mumbai in 2012-13? Haven’t seen many such counterattacking knocks which changed not only outcome of the match, but the series too.” 

Memon was speaking about the 2nd Test between India and England in 2012-13 Test series, which England had won by 10 wickets, due to a masterclass from Pietersen. In his 233-ball 186-run innings, the batsman struck 20 fours and four sixes. In his reply, Pietersen mentioned that the innings make a cut in his top three.
