64.08 - The average partnership between Pietersen and Collingwood in Tests. The 153 they put together was their second century stand in 12 innings, and they've also added five half-century partnerships

He jumped at the opportunity to work for ESPNcricinfo and is now confident of mastering the art of office cricket
