Bored with every discussion being about KP. For the record his record in ODI in last 2 years is that he averaged 28.44, 17.75 in the last year. He has only played one T20 in the last two years in which he did not bat. He was a fading player, and his time is gone. Move on.

Mark Butcher is spot on. England needs those personality player, even in test match cricket. KP is one such guy. What a waste.

Can't get the thing to work. Sounds like a fair assessment though. Not a good time to dump Pieterson, with a heap of short form cricket coming up. The loss of Root may be a blessing though.
