    And then the reason he eventually DID move to 4, was not because of what the team wanted, it was rather because he didn't want to bat with the currently very poor English tail! What a joke!

    "Then Kevin discussed with us that he was batting with the tail a lot and he wanted to bat four. We said 'Are you sure you want to? He said he'd rather do that than be caught with the tail that we've got at the moment."

    They should build the team around him, he is the best batter. It sounds soft, but if you get him happy, and let him go where he wants, then the chances are he'll bat better, and better for the team.

    Thats ridiculous! Give him the captaincy if you want to do that. We're not going to let Hussey do whatever he feels like just because he's our star batsman at the moment. Pietersen is not in a position to make these major decisions. The Captain and Coach decide what is best for the team, not a virtual rookie.

    I think England are just worried they'll upset him and he'll bugger off back to South Africa or something.

    That's never going to happen, I'm not worrying about that.

    To compare Australia to England is ridiculous. Of all the English batsmen, I'd say that only Pietersen at the moment has a realistic chance of getting into the Australian line up, to put in other words, your top order will score runs pretty much every match, wherever people bat.

    It is different with us, because of the unreliablity of the top order. So, we have to utilise what small amount of real and developed talent we have, we should do this by putting Pietersen, our best player, where he feels he can play best for himself and the team, since he knows his own game better than anyone, like Fletcher and Flintoff.

    The point is that KP, even though Dunc and the rest of the team wanted him to bat 4 for the whole series, refused and said he felt more comfortable at 5. Since when the hell does he make those decisions? Fred should tell him "You bat 4 or you're out of the team". They wanted their best player at 4 and KP had a whinge and refused. So he finally bats 4, 8 innings too late. He put his own wants over the wants of the team.

    That my friends, is not a team player.
    Thrashed by more he said, not behind in the series more. Are you thick?!

    One of the worst posters I've ever come across on these forums, you must be an absolute deadbeat.

    Lol, why does anyone give a toss about

    a) Pietersen being a team man or not (He averages mid forties ffs.)
    b) Buchanan
    c) What either of them thinks or does?

    And why is Pietersen any of Buchanan's business? What a load of tools

    My point exactly. It's like interviewing a toilet cleaner, on the subject of Spave Travel.

    Don't you mean "would have a realistic chance of getting into the Australian line up, were he Australian"?

    Thats an interesting concept really - who would he replace? Clarke, I would say. No one else. Which is surprising, as Pieterson is a very good player. Certainly not Ponting, Gilchrist and Hussey...and not opening either.
