Kevin Pietersen posted a picture of himself doing plank workout by the poolside on Twitter on Sunday. Going by the scenic background in the picture, former England captain Kevin Pietersen seems to be on a holiday but he suggested that there should be “no rest days” in his tweet that followed a hashtag “#PlankWell”. Former Sri Lanka wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara decided to tease Kevin Pietersen, saying: “Would have been a beautiful pic without you in it @KP24”. The social media banter left fans into splits.

This is not the first time when the Sri Lankan has come up with a hilarious take on someone else’s tweet.
In January, Sangakkara — along with his former Sri Lanka teammate Mahela Jayawardene — had trolled former Australia cricketer Dean Jones after he found a video on internet of an elephant roaming inside a Sri Lankan hotel.
Jones had asked Jayawardene and Sangakkara if the elephant in the video was roaming inside one of their hotels.
“@MahelaJay @KumarSanga2 which one of your hotels is this Wild elephant trying to find a room for a kip?” Jones said in a tweet.
However, Jones fell in his own trap as Jayawardene and Sangakkara came up with epic replies.
“Come experience our wildlife @ProfDeano,” Sangakkara said in a tweet.
Come experience our wildlife @ProfDeano

Jayawardene decided to destroy Jones with a hilarious reply, saying: “He had come looking for you mate..got the dates wrong.”
