kevin pietersen – another cock-up

Filed under: just whinging,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:19 am

although he survived a stick-on lbw let-off, pietersen made a creditable 69 in the first innings of the opening test of the much-trumpeted ashes test series at cardiff; no really, cardiff 😉

so why, after such good fortune did he play that rotten sweep shot, committing so early that he invited the bowler to stuff him? the bowler duly obliged and our hero was caught off his helmet sweeping a delivery so wide of off stump that even my granny would have left it alone!

worse was to come in the post-match interview when the great man assured us that he had no regrets about the shot and would do it all over again, given the chance, which he no doubt will be, and no doubt will!

of course he’s our top weapon. i just wish he could learn little humility, but to be honest i’d settle for him just leaving those stupid shots alone, especially if he’s going to give everyone, in particular the bowler so much advance warning.

he has the natural talent to bat most teams of the park playing proper cricket shots.

why is this so important; after all he did make a decent score? yes of course he did. but look at it from the australians’ point of view. they got away with a headache whe they could have had a bloody nose.

enough already!
