    Should England recall Kevin Pietersen from his England hiatus?

    3 good and elaborated reasons as to why England should or shouldn't recall Kevin Pietersen from his England hiatus?

    I know nothing about cricket and I gotta do this for school. Lol.

    Shouldn't

    He's been in poor form
    He sometimes confuses his mouth with his anus and talks out of the incorrect orifice
    It would have Piers Morgan celebrating wildly and ain't nobody got time for dat

    He shouldn't have been dumped, but recalling him now would be stupid.

    Should

    Did you see England's batting versus NZ?
    He hits lots of DLF Maximums (the Danny Morrison gambit)
    Given the amount of crap he was talking in the commentary box during the Big Bash, it'd be fantastic to see the soap opera that is English cricket deal with him back in the camp.

    Should
    - Experience
    - Puts bums on seats
    - If he finds his groove he's a great batsman

    Shouldn't
    - In terrible form with the bat
    - The other players hate him
    - Makes ECB and the selectors look weak

    Yes, he should've been. Cannot justify selecting someone who is such a **** if he's not averaging 50+

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

    Be that as it may, he was still averaging higher than anyone else in the team IIRC and had the ability to play insane innings that few other English batsmen had. Not saying he should be recalled now - if he was playing county cricket and dominating there'd be a better call for it, but still without hindsight it was at the very least poorly sold and arguably irrelevant. I mean would you dump Warne from Australia? (granted Warne >> Pietersen but you get the point).

    And if he was such a **** why wasn't he pernamently dumped after 2012, where there was actually something to go off (i.e. textgate)?

    He should have been. But the ECB and everyone else got sucked in with "he's too good to not be selected"............in 2013 that was no longer the case so he can indeed gagf.

    We've already established there are plenty of ****s in the England team so if you only select the World-class ****s and not the merely excellent ones, you're pretty much **** out of luck.

    No one has been really able to explain what made KP's behaviour awful enough to be kicked out in disgrace. He's been awful in the media, but so have plenty of others in the team, but they get a pass for some reason because they aren't perceived to be quite as bad. The English have a long, long history of class players having trouble being dumped by the authorities. It's been happening throughout their history and will keep happening because they're dumb.

    Only if we're allowed to kill Piers Morgan as part of the deal.

    I don't think you can really call it a "hiatus" if you've been told "**** off you won't be selected ever again".
