Sorry correction on my last comment. I rechecked KP's record on statsguru. Turns out the "great one" for whom all rules and contracts must be bent, doesn't average over 50 even in first class cricket. Probably too busy playing T20.

Will you English Pundits quit talking about KP as if he was the greatest ever to play for Eng. Best player in this side? Top 3 in the world? His test average is below 50 in a batsman dominated era. He has a track record of tantrums and ego fights with all teams he has ever played for (except of Delhi Daredevils). That should tell you where the problem lies.

Did Miss Moonda just say that KP left S.Africa because he was not "good enough" at the time and not the quota system?. Ha i find that appreciably hard to believe.
