Kevin Pietersen courts controversy by giving cricket audience something to watch

"Oops"

Despite Kevin Pietersen’s superb century putting England in control during the second Test against Sri Lanka, all the talk is about him doing something mildly interesting and getting a telling off for it.

Pietersen got a warning when the bowler refused to deliver to the batsman as he moved into position to attempt a switch-hit – an exciting and spectacular shot that the cricket authorities are trying to outlaw as a matter of urgency.

Sir Geoffrey Boycott tutted, “I don’t know what he was thinking, trying to play an entertaining shot like that.

“No-one in cricket wants to see an interesting shot but Kevin doesn’t seem to understand that.

“Luckily for the rest of the six hours he was at the crease he was as boring as everyone else, and he needs to do that more consistently if he wants to be a great batsman.

“Like me.”
