Pietersen has been unusualy restrained with the 6s this series, compared to the amount he hit last series. But he's scored more runs, so it's ok.
Read in the paper today that Kevin Pietersen's big mouth inspired Andrew Symonds 156 run knock. Pietersen, according to Matt Hayden, made some remark about Symonds lack of success with the bat in the Test arena and then he used it as a catalyst to take the English bowlers apart.
Watched the highlights of last years Ashes while play was delayed in the South Africa - India Test, seems like a completely different lifetimecompared to now.
Yeah, because I'm sure no other player has given Symonds stick about his **** record with the bat in tests.
It's just another way for the media to try and break KP so he's not a factor in the CB Series.

KP called Symonds a specialist fieldsman.Originally Posted by Craig
When he retires he should become a motivational speaker.
Keep up the good work you South African tool.
How on earth did we lose the urn to this sorry lot?.
We won 2, you won 1. Remember?Originally Posted by Legga
Now I remember.
McGrath trod on a ball and Kasprowitz was given out when his hand was off the bat.
So injuries and bad umpiring robbed us.
And of course that hasn't happended to England in this series at all..Originally Posted by Legga

Besides, Monty had Symonds on 42.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
