    Must be furious that Flintoff is returning the same week as him.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Typical arrangement would be for KP to be paid fees for naming rights and design of programs etc. - I would be very surprised if he is risking any money at all

    Market is massive as expats spend a fortune on after-school activities for kids and there are literally tens of thousands with high disposable income from cricket loving nations

    Also, I would not be surprised if KP became a resident of Dubai as it is tax-free so he might be around more than you think

    Yeah I knew that most of the money for him would be in the naming., never really thought about it as an after school thing. Reading the site it clashes almost entirely with the Big Bash and IPL which he plays so I wouldn't see him being there much, probably like the DLCA here.

    Suggested dates are winter/spring so no real surprise as summer is too hot and main school holidays (10 weeks) start at end of June

    Paid after school and holiday activities are massive as there is no real club setup in many sports plus many people use it as glorified babysitting

    Also, the bigger the name, the better as it is a bit of a wankfest with many people e.g. ManU football academies are huge

    This could be a real money spinner for the promoters as I cant remember anything comparable

    TBF to KP that was a pretty reserved article. After Downton's ill advised comments the other week one would forgive KP for a bit of retaliation, but apart from a little dig at Flower he didn't really say anything out of line IMO.

    Sounds like he's moved on and bears no malice..........which is a good place for him to be.

    This article strikes me as being totally disingenuous tbh.

    Is he allowed to write that article because the term of the CA has expired, or because the CA was terminated due to Downton's comments?

    "Paul Downton and the ECB both apologise to Kevin Pietersen for those comments made that were in breach of the settlement agreement and have confirmed they will abide by its terms moving forward."

    BBC Sport - Kevin Pietersen: ECB apologises over Ashes 'attitude'

    Righto, so it wasn't terminated following Downton's comments. So its either expired, or the terms were not breached by KP's article because he didn't say anything negative about the ECB, management or the coaching staff. Other than a very slight Flower comment and the point that he thinks back-to-back Ashes was a mistake, he mainly talked about himself. Probably didn't breach anything.

    The argument will never be put to bed until England either find some success without him, or he retires from cricket. I have a feeling the latter will happen first

    I noticed in the original KP column in the telegraph he compares the situation of himself at the start of his career and with that of Buttler - and suggest Buttler should definitely be playing. Kevin Pietersen: Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes must be in the England Test side - Telegraph

    I don't think the comparison is valid personally. Pietersen averaged 50+ in fc cricket and understood and knew his fc game when selected. Buttler still doesn't have any idea how he is playing. An average of 32.61? Hmm suggest someone who doesn't really understand his game too well in fc cricket or has obvious weakness. He just fences outside off at the 4th/5th stump back of the length and knicks off to the keeper slips too much a la Bailey.

    Now Buttler will bat at 7 in test cricket so these deficiencies will matter less than a genuine bat like Bailey, Bevan, Morgan but he still needs to find a way to succeed regularly in first class cricket. At the moment he strikes me as a guy stuck between two pillars. He can't decide whether to bat like a proper bat or like he does in ODI cricket. Personally at his current point I'd tell him to go out there and be aggresive and play like he does in one day cricket. Don't worry too much about getting out and just play aggresively and put the bowlers on the back foot.

    Until he knows and understands his 4/5 day game I wouldn't select him.

    Of course his keeping is also poor at this stage and really needs to improve as well.
