Kevin Pietersen’s recent loss of form and travails against left-arm spin have been well documented, but Duncan Fletcher, the former England coach, writes in his Guardian blog that he believes the batsman has the necessary reserves to meet his problems head on and fight his way back to his best.
All players have weaknesses. One of the things that impressed me most about Pietersen when I worked with him was that where a lot of people run away from their problems, he has always been willing to meet them head-on. If he feels that facing left-arm-spin is an area of concern, then he will practise playing that style of bowling over and again in the nets.
