    I'd defo agree with this. However, the fact that KP is a bit of a jackass just makes me like him more. You don't find many nicer than Sangakara though, seems like a really top bloke.

    Pietersen is plenty likeable IMO, what you see is what you get

    Seriously, I'm not even going to bother getting into this conversation. I'll just let wtf_ben(insertrandomnumbershere) make a **** out of himself.
    Are there any bowlers other than Warne and McGrath?

    Sanga for me and not just because I'm Sri Lankan. He's been really consistent for many years while the rest of our batsmen struggle to maintain any sort of respectable average.

    Dont know what you base that on. I've met him quite often and I hate the guy.

    I have played with Sanga at University level in 1999 season. He was a nice bloke away from the field. On the field he's a very irritating prick (I was not by any means second to him in that aspect). I had few sledging wars with him during Inter Fac. tournaments. But end of the day vey friendly to have a beer and a chat, altough he was a SL A player by then.

    Well everytime I've met him, he comes across as an arrogant prick.. Not that he's unfriendly, he just thinks he's better than everyone else. Stayed at his place and had dinner in a restaurant owned by his family though and we did have a great time on that particular trip.

    Sanga sounds like a real jerk.

    Yeah, seems an absolute sweetheart in interviews, although his fellow countrymen hardly likely to call him a cock if he isn't one.

    Sanga by the proverbial country mile currently tho; most handsome player to watch at the moment too, IMHO.

    KP is lovely in interviews too tbf. So much nicer than the stereotype of the arrogant, ignorant foreigner that he's sometimes cast as.

    Not unreasonably cast as I might add. Not that I mind, his whole general arrogance is as Corrin said, just him. He's one of these sorts who I would happily describe as "likeable", but never would I call him "nice".

    Yeah, it's just that I don't consider justified arrogance a bad thing in a person. KP's brilliant, why is he expected to pretend that he isn't all the time? It's an English thing.

    I am struggling to find which part of KP is English.
