Kevin Pietersen, the South African born England cricketing star has launched a campaign to save rhinos and to show off his anti-hunting credentials at the same time. He is bringing poaching crimes to the attention of his followers via Twitter.
The controversial cricketer caused a stir when he went into bat with unconventional black stickers covering his bat. On closer inspection, these were shown to be small images of rhinos. He tweeted: “I’m batting for the rhinos”.
Pietersen publicly condemned Australian cricketing legend Glenn Mcgrath after pictures emerged online of Mcgrath on a big game hunt posing with his trophies. Pietersen has also launched a new line of anti-rhino-poaching cricket bats.
