London: A video of a diaper-wearing toddler playing elegant cricket has sparked hilarious conversations among global cricketers including Kevin Pietersen and Virat Kohli.

Almost a month after former England captain Michael Vaughan joked about the video doing the rounds on social media , in which a kid is seen playing copybook cricketing shots, Pietersen picked up on it on his personal Instagram page asking Kohli to get the toddler in his squad.

"Get him in your squad, Virat Kohli. Can you pick him?!?!" Pietersen posted on Instagram with the video.

The Indian captain replied to the tweet: "Verified Where's he from??? He's unreal."

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis replied: "No ways that's crazy."

Fox Cricket had shared the video on Twitter last month. The video sees the kid doing indoor practice and effortlessly displaying a wide range of drives on the front foot as the ball is thrown at him - with a huge smile on his face.

"Surely he has an English cat or dog..." Vaughan had written while tweeting the video.

Soon, more celebrities joined in on the banter on Pietersen's page, including actor Siddhanth Kapoor, former cricketer Jacques Kallis and former footballer Philip Neville.
