    yeah, I figure he'll play until the 2015 Ashes then do some t20 and that will be it
    Proudly supporting the world's no 1 spin bowler Rangana Herath and the mighty Sri Lankans!

    I even made a domestic thread

    Out of the 2 my money would be on KP to get there first which wouldn't be a bad career ambition.........to be the first English cricketer to score 10,000 test runs. Even if Cooky get's there a few months later.

    Pretty sure he will retire after the 13/14 Ashes.

    Maybes not immediately after, but certainly not before.
    - As featured in The Independent.

    "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."
    - The Guardian's Andrew Anthony

    What makes you all think he'll have an early self-made retirement?

    Seeing as he's said on more than one occasion that one of his ambitions is to get to 10k runs then I'm pretty sure he'll keep going.

    May well see some sort of behind the scenes agreement with the ECB whereby he doesn't retire from ODIs but doesn't play all the series (unless they've changed the rules regarding ODI/T20I availability) to enable that.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I really hope he does, but KP has said a lot of things tbf.......you just can't know which way he is going to turn.

    Everything seems to be going swimmingly for him at the moment, he's back in the fold, his workload is getting managed, everyone loves him again.......not so tough being him right now. I'm under no illusion though that that can and will change at some point.

    He could very well play tests beyond 2015 or he could just say **** it and quit tomorrow.

    He's got one hell of an ego - I think he'll have Sachin trouble myself

    My bet is he will retire after the ashes, play T20 for 12 months than make a comeback from retirement when England starts to struggle
    His comeback will probably be unsuccesful but it will feed his ego with all the debate about whether he will make a comeback or not.

    Out of 10, how satisfied did this post make you? Can imagine you sitting there with the biggest smirk when you hit "post".

    Impossible to predict the future for someone as volatile as Pieterson. Circumstances may even take the choice out of his hands.

    He'd get big interest from the 20/20 franchises

    Absolutely, but unless these leagues are likely to go tits up before hand that cash cow will wait for him.
