    No. Once he learns not to give his wicket away he'll be the next greatest Test and ODI batsman, he has that much potential, skill and ability.

    It's PietersEn. No one can seem to spell it right.

    And yeah I think he's a tad overrated, he's a good batsman but he gives his wicket away too easily and has been dropped so many times in his career that once his luck runs out he won't be having such a nice time of it.

    I tyhink he's really overrated! He hasn't done anything special over the past few years and seems to give away his wicket at crucial times. He did well in the ashes but in the One day arena, he needs to improve dramatically!

    Yeah, that average of 60-odd is really shocking. Gotta improve on that. :rolleyes:

    It's closer to 50 than 60, and he's averaged under 40 this year in ODIs.
    I think Pietersen is a bit overrated in that some people talk about him as a great batsman already, when he still has a long way to go.

    which England batsman has been succesfull in ODI lately...Strauss maybe!
    Pietersen is not that big a legend, but if he learns one or two things...he has the potential to be awesome!
    and as KP has proven before, he is a fast learner.

    He can play some pretty awesome shots, and can destroy great bowlers, such as McGrath, Muralitharan and Warne. I don't think he's overated, he just needs to get some more big scores.

    Pieterson at the moment is overrated. He's a good batsman no doubt, but hes a little immature and and needs to work on that. He needs to learn what shot to play and at what time. He gives away his wickets a lot which makes him a little immature in Cricket terms. If he works on that, then overtime he will become one of the greatest ODI and Test batsman to have ever set foot on a Cricket pitch because he has he has immense talent.

    How can anyone think Pietersen will be the greatest batsman?

    He's good, but no where near that level.

    Still don't think so, i could see him being in the Younis Khan bracket, but not much higher.
