Ever since Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan have hung their boots, praises and tributes have poured in from across the world. Kevin Pietersen is one individual who has often played against the two stellar batsmen in more than one outings.

Hence, when Younis and Misbah bid farewell to international cricket with a magical Test series victory over the West Indies, Pietersen took to Twitter and recorded a short video message for the two legends.

"It's always sad to see when two cricketers of such quality retire," said Pietersen. "However, I wish them both well and guys, enjoy retirement," he added.

Pietersen said that Younis and Misbah would be missed by Pakistan cricket team over the years. He said that both Misbah and Younis were not only brilliant batsmen but also capable leaders who led Pakistan to so much good stuff over the years.
