    Look, I can buy the long-term argument but there is no way in hell this team will be a stronger team for KP's absence come Thursday. The fact does remain that without his innings, the series is probably already gone by now.

    Yeah but KP didn't send texts before the 2nd test.

    Its a whole different ballgame when you don't trust the guy you walk in to battle with. Even if KP would do well in the third, the rest of the team would hardly be in the right mindset. Its not KP vs. South Africa.

    Just as an interesting aside, apparently with the advent of FB and twitter narcissism is no longer considered a personality disorder

    From the article

    "Matt Prior is the most selfless of cricketers, as can be seen whenever he bats, and now, off his own back, he decided to ring Pietersen to try to get to the bottom of why his team-mate had barely conversed with the England team for months.
    "

    Bugger, now I'm going to feel slightly bad if we get Prior out, that was rather decent of him.

    That's quite a surprise.I'm not qualified to comment, but Pietersen looks a pretty acute case these days & I don't see how it can be anything but trouble in such a team sport. Does the staff not include someone with at least an inkling of these matters?

    I think their thinking was that it still exists, it's just so common that it's no longer considered a disorder but normal.

    Indeed, champion thing to do in the situation. I would hazard a guess that it was one of the reasons behind KP's U-Turn.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Apparently Goughy wants to know if the texts between England players who aren't KP will be checked for any anti-KP comments

    Haha "Piers, do you think that the last 15 minutes have done Kevin Pietersen more harm than good?"
