    well.. if he does not have evidence, then it is silly of him but if he really feels a couple of private conversations have reached this dude who was running the fake account, then I think he has every reason to push ECB this way because the reason ECB have him out of the side is the same damn thing..

    IMO the only way he'll get back in is by saying "you need me. I need you. So how about we let bygones be bygones and work from a clean slate". Might be impossible but a damn sight better than trying to stoke his own fires, which'll just inflaming the ECB's.

    I actually thought he already had when he released that video stating his availability for all forms of the game. It really did seem to me that Pietersen wanted to put all this crap behind him and move forward (basically like you said in Post #621). I didn't realise there were still actually issues from his end, so this has surprised me a bit.

    To be fair, this all has a fairly murky feel to it. The report is pretty quiet on where/when this was said, and to who.

    I mean to me it seems they (KP and Flower or w/ever) were just discussing all the issues and KP was like "well hey I wanna know 4 sur swann and broad weren't involved in that" which seems like a reasonable request and probably something Flower wants to be sure of too and i dunno know someone decided to leak it because
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Wasn't one of Pietersen's myriad gripes that stuff from private discussions was being leaked to the press?

    I mean, he's a dick. But I think he has enough sense to not leak things that make him look like a dick.
