Give it a rest, you love nothing better, than jumping all over KP and criticizing him, before he even played a innings, the press were all over him, questioning is heart, when he came home from the WC, .When it turned out he had a double hernia, it should have been left there, but it wasn't. There's hardly a mention, of the fact, that he got a grubber of a ball, that didn't get above 3 inch of the floor. He's just come back from a series where he averaged 60, why should is place be under pressure, after one unlucky dismissal, you talk as if he hasn't scored runs in games and games, which is rubbish. Bell's the new KP, you what, Bell's had a couple of good tests., so lets not get carried away. KP averages 41 in the last 2 years ,even though he has been through injuries and poor form, in the same time Strauss averages 39 and there's no mention of that.
