Kevin Pietersen hit Twitter following news that Piers Morgan's CNN chat show was to end with a message of support and a hashtag campaign to get the chat show host his job back.
Morgan, for his part, appreciated the gesture and joked that his ouster was as a result of Pietersen.
The ex-England cricketer is just returning the favour. Earlier in the month, Morgan went in to bat for Pietersen when he was removed from the international team.
Whether Pietersen is quite as vociferous as Morgan was in the same position remains to be seen—but even if he has his tongue in cheek, it's an amusing public nod to the campaign to get him his England position back just weeks beforehand.
Of course, that didn't work—England are now in the Caribbean and beginning life without the batsman.
In any case, Piers clearly appreciated the gesture from his friend, swiftly retweeting the message.
Pietersen's next cricketing gig is set to be the IPL, where he will represent the Delhi Daredevils after being snapped up for $880,000 in the 2014 auction.
