The little rivalry between Kevin Pieterson and Mitchel Johnson is well known to all the cricket fans and has been duly noted. Johnson, the former Aussie quickie has found some serious fascination in taking sly digs at others through his Tweets but perhaps that habit of his didn’t go well with Kevin Pieterson.

Here’s Why Kevin Pietersen Blocked Mitchell Johnson On Twitter

Annoyed at Mitchel Johnson’s tweets, Pieterson ended up blocking Mitchel Johnson and Johnson has the last laugh about it. This banter began when during the first Ashes Test Johnson took to Twitter to attack the England fast bowlers for their performance in the first innings of this year’s Ashes.

Johnson posted the Tweet on the third day of the test after England chose to avail the second new ball. England bowlers made no mistakes and reaped the leverage of the new ball pretty soon as Anderson sent back Tim Paine and Stuart Broad dismissed Starc.

But then the going got tough for the English bowlers as the Aussie skipper, Steve Smith and Pat Cummins played some outclass strokes and shifted the pressure back upon the bowlers.

This gave Johnson another chance to take a dig at Anderson and he’s just didn’t stop their, he further tried to take a dig at Pieterson and Vaughn for his commentary.

Here is the interesting thread of Tweets before which Pieterson blocked Mitchel Johnson. Perhaps Pieterson didn’t like Johnson’s sense of humour and his habit to nudge people on Twitter. Johnson however found it really funny when he realised that he’s been blocked by Pieterson.
