    Umm, dunno where to put this, but KP has retired from limited overs, just when I thought he'd found a role opening

    Edit: damn ****ing beaten

    Is this a hissy fit or just to keep himself fit and fresh for tests and breaking all of the England batting records (to be beaten by Cook afterwards anyway)

    I can only assume that no-one had paid attention to him for two weeks.

    He could earn a more than handy living for himself as a domestic T20 freelancer alongside his Test career. Given he hasn't been that good in the ODIs as of late, and T20 can be a format solely given to the younger guys, it's not a horrible decision IMO.

    If it extends his Test career it's well worth it, IMO.

    Kevin Pietersen Retires From ODIs and T20Is

    England news: Kevin Pietersen retires from one-day cricket | England Cricket News | ESPN Cricinfo

    Thought it warranted its own thread as he's got a fair career to reflect on and obviously the impact of this decision extends beyond the WI series.
    Apparently he wanted to pack in ODIs but continue with T20Is but was told where to get off. Odd timing considering how bad he was for so long and now he's turned the corner (finally) he seemingly doesn't fancy it anymore.
    Would've thought he might've waited until after the SA series as well.

    Apparently he wanted to retire from ODI's and not T20. But according to ECB rules you retire from one and you have to retire from the other.

    I wasn't expecting this. He would eventually retire from Tests I would think.

    The first English loss to the IPL i guees. Since his side qualified for the Champions League he would have been playing pretty much through to next January and I know he's been vocal about too much travel.

    it was widely speculated after the last world cup that he was giving up 50 over cricket. It's more of a blow to england t20 chances than 50 over imo.

    They should have let him carry on T20s, huge loss to the team. Would walk into any T20 side in the world.
