"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

That is because Ricky is excellent .Most series Kp blasts one century to keep average of fifty up then he gone for a series No big loss.I am more afraid Collingwood then Kp.Such BS. Weird thing is... we can still win without him whereas Aus would struggle hugely without Ponting (captaincy notwithstanding)

Huge, especially if the replacement is Bell. Think England should go alright if they adopt an ABB principle though.
Rest In Peace Craigos
First injury in KP's career then?
This was a serious post:
looks like bell is the replacement - the same man who went out for 7 today, ouch. we will miss the presence of KP the most.
Will have to check the odds on Australia 3-1, looks a decent shout now.

I believe it's good for England. Atleast, we can learn batting without him. Hope, Strauss takes the responsibility and Bell bats as well as he has done at No.6.
Except Australia didn't bother bringing spare batsman on the tour, so if that's what you meant then you're absolutely right.
Don't see why everyone's so stressed about the Aussies not having a back-up opener on tour. Surely it's better to have Rogers playing for Derbyshire than sat twiddling his thumbs in the dressing room? Anyway, Watson's the back-up batsman technically, he covers the middle order slots, and MacDonald isn't exactly the worst batsman in the world either.
