    Cook didn't get dropped for being a selfish prick right after scoring his highest score. Also never had to be run out intentionally.

    Cricket was different then. Cook cost Pietersen his career. Don't bring politics into it. This is about their batting.

    Boycott. And that's solely based on him doing pretty decently at the end of his career in 2 series vs the 4 horse men

    Peak Boycott and Cook batting (read blocking) in tandem would be pretty awesome. Wouldn't wish that on any bowler

    Gavaskar and Boycott would be the best.

    What a piece of bullshit this is.

    Cook was a driving force behind the “reconciliation” process which ended last week with Pietersen being added to the squad for the eight-week tour to India.

    He disagreed with Andrew Strauss’s comments earlier this week that there remains a “tough” and “difficult” road ahead for England and Pietersen, but at the same time acknowledged the importance of cohesion and togetherness over the course of the next 18 months which includes this India tour and two Ashes series.

    It is not a bad situation, as far as Cook is concerned, for Pietersen to be aware that it is the new captain who wanted to find common ground. Having fallen out so spectacularly with Strauss, Pietersen cannot afford a repeat with Cook. Such an outcome would spell the end.

    Cook met Pietersen last week and senses this is a new start, even if the beginning will be delayed by a few days. Pietersen has been freed to play for his Indian Premier League franchise, the Delhi Daredevils, in the Twenty20 Champions League which ends on Sunday, the day England transfer from their training camp in Dubai to Mumbai.

    “It has been a tough couple of months with Kevin but he is very contrite and desperate to be back playing and doing what he does best, score runs for England,” said Cook at Lord’s on Wednesday afternoon. “As a captain that is all I want. I want him to come back in the side and score match-winning runs like he has in the past.
    Over time, Pietersen burned his bridges with everyone who had been on his side.

    Boycott has for some reason and probably unfairly stuck in my head as a caricature batsman. Gooch comes to my mind before Boycott among fine English opening batsmen.

    Didn't boycott just refuse to play for 3 years because he didn't get the captaincy? Then another 2 years after the rebel tour. So missed out on 5 peak years where he probably would have got up to 13000 + ??
