    Look, you can call me an idiot all you want. Pietersen might be averaging 50, but that means nothing if his team is getting hammered. He has to do what is best for the team. Some of you may have forgotten the small fact that cricket is indeed a team game and it's the teams results that matter.

    What a ridiclous point. England would still be thrashed whatever KP did, be quite fool.

    I remember reading an article in the Times back during last winter when England had just lost the 2nd test in India.

    KP had been out sweeping at Harbhajan after playing some dogged defence and when interviewed after the match had stated that he was trying to play for the team and curb his natural attacking instincts.

    The article had critisiced this 'team mentality'. "KP is a player of individual skill and should be allowed to play as he sees fit. Forcing him to play in a certain style to suit the team is curtailing his potential and hence is counter-productive..." (I paraphrase, but that was certainly the gist of it.)

    Ironic now that one of those on KP's back about "not playing for the team" is Christopher Martin Jenkins - who writes for the Times!

    Why not? I doubt you have anything to do in real life to distract you.

    Sounds like a no tbh. You know back in school when you asked someone if they'd gone all the way yet, and they said something like 'why should i tell you?' you just knew they hadn't.
