Kevin Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen

Player Details

Name: Kevin Pietersen

Date of birth: 27/06/1980

International Team: England

Domestic Team: Surrey

Role: Batsman

Bowling Style: Off break

Batting Style: Right-hand

After leaving South Africa in protest at the quota-system, Pietersen began his England career in the greatest series of them all, the 2005 Ashes. He scored half-centuries in his first three innings of the series. But his breathtaking 158 at the Oval is still spoken about in hushed tones by his England team-mates.

In 2006-7, Down Under, he scored another brilliant 158 in Adelaide, adding three more half-tons as he finished the disastrous series defeat as England's top scorer with 490 runs.

Injuries restricted him to just two Ashes Tests in 2009, a year which saw him removed as England captain.

Going into the 2010-11 Ashes series in Australia, Pietersen had not scored a Test century since March 2009. After scoring 41 in the opener, he hammered 228 at Adelaide which remains his highest Test score.

Despite his on-field heroics, Pietersen has never been truly loved by England fans. His arrogance, real or perceived, his undermining of Andrew Strauss, and the way he was stripped of the captaincy left sour tastes all round. The problem is, without it, he would probably not be half the player he is.
