    Piers Morgan ‏@piersmorgan

    Penny will soon drop with public & media that the REALLY out-of-control egos in that England dressing room are Broad, Anderson and Swann.

    No surprise that the ego of Chris "Robot" Tremlett is not being questioned

    What a mess

    I can't see a way back for KP at the moment. Certainly not into the T20 team given Broad is captain.

    And Swann's ego being too big I can imagine, Broad at a push... but Jimmy A with an ego problem seems bizarre.

    Maybe not. His ego might manifest itself as having to be constantly mollycoddled. cf his comments about Vaughan.

    I reckon he's changed a lot since them. Certainly then media interviews with him were basically him looking at the floor mumbling, he didn't seem to have any self-confidence at all. He seems pretty different to that these days

    Frankly, I just hope the day will come when the South Africans will get caught in a bad mood by an Aussie roflstomping and leak the texts just for laffs.

    I think this piece in Cricinfo made a lot more sense.. England in India 2012/13 : Kevin Pietersen's future remains uncertain | Cricket News | India v England | ESPN Cricinfo


    Especially the bit about how England Team Management's vision on how their dressing room should be was narrow..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    It's a real shame Pietersen didn't stick it out and play for South Africa. Imagine what a team they'd have with him added to the mix.
