    England sack Pietersen from all forms of cricket

    Credit to England for making the hard decision. I've thought for a while the time would come when the baggage Pietersen brings to the team would outweigh his contribution to the score-sheet, and England obviously feel that time has come.

    Makes you wonder again who was Swann was talking about when he mentioned "egos in the changeroom" upon retiring.

    I wish you'd go in the "changeroom". Maybe it'd change you into a decent poster.

    i don't want this touching my thread
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    England facing a total re-build:

    Chairman of selectors.
    Coach.
    Captain - surely Cook's position will be the subject of an exhaustive review - Broad likely to be the new captain IMO.
    Vice Captain - surely Prior won't retain the position.
    Team - not many positions guaranteed after what surely must be the worst performance ever by an English team.

    I need to ask you Hooksey if you consider yourself an Aussie cricket fan or just an England hater?? The only thing you've brought to the table is the later..........seen little if any of the former.

    You know it's really not healthy don't you son??

    No point taking your frustration for England's worst ever performance out on me sport. Get out and smell the clover.
