    Yeah, not gonna die wondering, is he?

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Southee's batting is the most over-criticised thing on CW for mine. He's the perfect #9 and he's rarely been given the chance to bat above that.

    Southee definitely better off going the slog (or at least playing positively), as I type he is playing some lovely shots. NZ fans will also be glad to note that C Martin isn't in at 11 either, Boult can score handy runs down their while Wagner is more of a blocker.

    EDIT: Southee plays a stupid shot, should have just left it, but would we be saying that if it came off?

    its because he's so one paced. if we're batting for time for whatever reason he is useless.

    and he's gone.

    Best jinx.

    Reckon he was probably sent out there with orders to do that though.

    I don't really comprehend that inning.

    Why try to hit every single ball for four.
