Very interesting article.  Could lead to some quite lengthy discussions.

My point of view: 

I'll be very blunt - I don't like either Kevin Pietersen or Shane Warne.  However, both are/were excellent cricketers.
Cook is a good cricketer but in my opinion, not a good captain.
To go to "war" with a player like Pietersen, can be suicide, especially if the captain isn't buddy-buddy with him.  A player whose performance is dependant on how much he is patted, should rather stay away from the pitch.  A player who wants to throw a tantrum everytime things are not going his way, should rather stay away from the pitch.

Conclussion:  Pietersen should rather stay away from the pitch.  :whistle:

I'm only allowed to refer to KP as a w@nker once a day whenever he is on telly. My wife won't tolerate more w@nkers being shouted out in the house. The same goes for Tiger Woods.

He's been called a maverick on other reports I have read, but the case stands that he is a prima donna and unless someone has a permanent, firm grip on his neck he is seemingly uncontrollable. That is no way to behave in a TEAM and as we all know, one player doesn't make a team.

Cheers, Kevin. Don't let the door hit you on the butt on the way out.

And I see now he has signed up for the KZN Dolphins as part of this seasons Ram Slam T20. He says: "He is ecstatic to be back home in the province of his birth" :nono:

What a "dilemma" for both English and Protea selectors!

He (KP) must be a "terrible" person for England not to consider selecting........AND........a HIGH priority for the Proteas to select with the upcoming English tour in December.

Kry vir julle..............! :nono:
