Profile

Kevin Pietersen deserves to be recognised as one of the most captivating cricketers ever to pull on an England shirt. His flamboyant strokeplay has been at the heart of many of England's finest performances in the past decade. A brazen belief in his own ability, moments of outrageous unorthodoxy and, at times, a surprising vulnerability on and off the field have all combined to give him great box-office appeal.

Timeline
    • March 6, 1998
      A gentle offspinner makes his debut
      • Pietersen makes his first-class debut for Natal 'B' against Easterns at Kingsmead aged just 17. Regarded primarily as an offspinner and lower-order batsman at this stage of his career, Pietersen took one wicket in the match and, batting at no.8, made an unbeaten three in his only innings.
    • December 1999
      Graeme Swann, 10 years earlier
      • Impresses members of the touring England side, including Nasser Hussain, during an England XI warm-up match against KwaZulu-Natal at Kingsmead, clearing the boundary four times on his way to an unbeaten 57-ball 61. He also picks up four top-order wickets with his handy offspin.
    • October 2000
      Mother's love
      • Signs a three-year contract with Nottinghamshire in the year he turns 20. Pietersen, who has a British passport courtesy of his English mother, tells a South African newspaper "I'm not turning my back on South African cricket", but eventually decides to throw in his lot with Nottinghamshire, saying that the "guarantee of three years of high-quality cricket" with Nottinghamshire was "a career opportunity too good to turn down."
