    Pietersen playing for South Africa?

    Would SA be a better team if Pietersen was playing for them?

    Yes, Saffies would have been better if KP would have been playing for them, but as KP said he might never have been selected to play for South Africa because of the colour of his skin.

    But thats the reason KP has been giving to the whole world that discrimination while selecting a team takes place in South Africa on the basis of colour of skin and thats why he left South Africa and shifted to England.

    Consistently? I doubt it. It would be a much better contest though, especially since Pietersen can play McWarne far better than most. I'm assuming this is test cricket, btw.

    Well SA have won 1 of the 12 Tests played against Aus this decade. Id say that was pretty consistent.

    Also SA have only won 9 of 27 ODIs in the 2000's

    They have: Gibbs.Kallis and Mark Boucher.They wouldn't need KP.

    Yeah, because you usually only pick three players in your team. And Boucher and Gibbs are so much better than Pietersen...

    They definately would be a better team. Pietersen would add a lot to their batting and would contrast well with their middle order of Prince, Kallis, etc.

    They would undoubtably be better off with KP in the side for mine.
