Agreed that KP shouldn't have been fined for his comments about Knight, unless there's some contractual; angle that I've forgotten.
None of which is terribly relevant to KP being dropped anyway.
He criticized KP's captaincy and Samit Patel in the book. My point was that KP has always been given the short end of the stick when it comes to enforcing rules, while other team mates have been treated with more consideration for similar offences.
That doesn't change the fact that KP has been a **** and has mostly himself to blame for the his current predicament, but it does show that ECB's stepmotherly attitude towards him could have been a factor in his decision making.
