The Kevin Pietersen controversy
The Kevin Pietersen controversyRSSFeeds
Kevin Pietersen retired from limited-overs international cricket in May 201, and though he retracted that decision it set off a chain of events that led to his being dropped from the World Twenty20 squad. He was then involved in another controversy, sending text messages to players in the South African team then touring England, and was dropped from the final Test at Lord's despite having scored a match-saving century in the previous Test.
