    Probably because he thinks Australia are more likely to win if we don't have KP, and therefore it's a safer bet?

    Good to see someone gets it. I barely bet on sports unless a) I'm supremely confident, b) am taking an exotic bet like "first try-scorer" in rugby ust for fun or c) I'm reasonably confident and am putting it in a multi.

    If Pietersen did happen to be out, I'd probably put $100 or so on for (my estimate would be about) $20 or so profit.

    Again, Jakester, telling me how to bet is like me telling your mother how to....- hmm, I better not go there.

    Yeah.

    This is in no way suggesting that Prior's a better batsman than Pietersen - because he isn't - I just don't particularly like watching Pietersen bat. It's a stylistic thing that you can't really argue against.. sure you can be surprised, but how it is is how it is.

    Painkillers to get Pietersen through Ashes

    He will probably end up missing a test or two anyway. He should have a rest between now and the Ashes, but he probably won't.

    He is using painkillers. I wonder how long that will last, and how effective it will actually be. He could well miss out on a game or two is it gets worse.

    Some people may not be aware of the startling regularity with which top-level cricketers use painkillers, cortisone injections and the like.

    Whether Pietersen requires this op before the end of the Ashes series remains to be seen.

    Whether it's The Ashes doesn't make an injury any better or worse. An injury is an injury, and it is unaffected by the magnitude of an upcoming series.

    If the injury is bad enough, Pietersen will either a) not play or b) play and be of little use (a la Michael Atherton in 1998/99 for example). Hopefully, it will be sufficiently not-too-bad to be manageable and allow Pietersen to play at somewhere near his best, but that remains to be seen.

    Yeah but he's going to be more likely to suck it up and play through the injury if it is a big series like the Ashes.

    Makes me wonder why you'd join up to a cricket forum to make such a post. It's an awful lot of effort just to post what is probably one of the most cliched, tedious, average trolls you'd see related to cricket. Probably best that you **** off and never come back.
