I never criticise Kevin Pietersen’s batting or cricket in general on this blog. I think a lot of the stick he has come in for over the years is wrong, and that at times in the past he has carried England’s batting almost single handed.
I’ve also been criticised in the past for saying this – but I really do believe that we owe him big time.
At the same time I’ve mentioned it on here before about Pietersen’s twitter comments, they have been stupid and childish in my view and are getting worse.
That’s why I am delighted to see the ECB give him a kick up the arse over it.
I really don’t see where he is going with his what seems to be bitter vendetta against Nick Knight, Knight is hardly an outspoken commentator who rubs people up with outrageous views, he’s certainly no Geoff Boycott is he?
Singling out Knight in this manner seems daft. It’s making Pietersen look somehow jealous or bitter. Is there something Knight has done to Pietersen that is really that bad? Or is this just as stupid as it seems?
It’s not just Knight either, as in the past he has had a swipe at Dominic Cork and Kepler Wessels.
Come on Pietersen, time to grow up and get the chip off your shoulder.
As the more astute readers of this blog might have noticed, I have added a cricketers twitter feed to this site. It is intended to give an insight into the world of cricketers, as opposed to seeing drunken tweets from dropped England players slagging off Geoff Miller late at night – only to be removed by the morning.
If I use Facebook as often as I do my Twitter account, then it is hard to know why I have bothered – but good intentions and all that, so lets see how it goes.
I’ve had a look around the facebook site and it has shown just what a social media dinosaur I am, I haven’t a bloody clue how to use it.
Anyway, first things first, and apparently I need 25 followers to get a username, including my misses I have only a pathetic 4 at the moment. I haven’t a clue what having the username entitles me to do, but getting one sounds pretty basic so I don’t want to fail there.
So come on Stani Army, Tracerbullet, BP and my 4 or 5 other followers (I think I might have), get your acts together and give me an honorary follow, at least get me into double figures.
