Former head coach of the Indian cricket team Ravi Shastri has praised South African batsman Keegan Petersen. Shastri says that this batsman reminds him of the legendary Gundappa Viswanath.

The 28-year-old Pietersen batted brilliantly against India. This batsman showed amazing patience in front of the world’s best pace attack. Pietersen scored the most runs in the 3-match Test series. He was adjudged man of the series. In the three Test matches against India, Pietersen scored a total of 276 runs at an average of 46. During this, 3 half-centuries came out of Pietersen’s bat.

Pietersen’s best score of 82 runs in this series. He scored 67, 72 and 82 runs. On the pitch where the Indian batsmen were struggling, Pietersen scored fiercely. South Africa defeated India by 7 wickets in the Cape Town Test to win the series 2-1.

Shastri wrote on his official Twitter handle, ‘Kegan Peterson. One day he will become the great player of the world. Reminds me of my childhood hero Gundappa Vishwanath. Vishwanath, who was one of the best batsmen of his era, played 91 Tests and 25 ODIs for India.

Shastri also said in reference to former England captain Kevin Pietersen that ‘KP’ (Kegan Pietersen) is a good ‘initial’. India had defeated South Africa by 113 runs in the Centurion Test, but after that Team India had to face defeat in both the Tests.

South Africa defeated India by 7 wickets in the second test played in Johannesburg. In this way, India’s dream of winning the series after 29 years was once again shattered.
