    If KP didn't exist would Piers Morgan have created him ?

    It doesn't have to be either/or. It's possible to be misunderstood AND a loudmouth.

    He's both. KP's problem is that he's been too much of a **** to fit into the England dressing room, the ECB are also guilty of not factoring in his cockishness when managing him.

    Shane Warne was a prize **** as well, but he would never have been dropped by Australia unless he was under performing on the field.

    KP was too big a pillock for too long - there comes a time when that can't be managed.

    And note how, according to him, he's never at fault.

    Where's the third option "total ****".

    I don't buy that. Surely the likes of Prior and Swann might have spoken up if he was a major problem?

    On Steve Harmison during that 2008 tour of India, he writes: "At that point, my weaknesses re-emerged. Harmy kept bowling short and wide, he kept getting cut, and I lost my patience, shouting, bowl the f****** ball straight… I should have helped him more positively, but I just didn't understand the pressure he was under in the middle, or the pressure he felt at being away from home. He needed a lot more encouragement, a lot more attention, and I didn't treat him the way that I should have."

    Yeah form was the big consideration when he was dropped in the WI in '99 but, reputedly, his behaviour toward certain team members had also worsened. Because he's Warne, he was given more leeway than others but he began to abuse that. Cue massive sook, retirement talk, etc.
