Kevin Peter Pietersen MBE (born June 27, 1980 in London) is a cricket commentator and an England international. He is a right-handed batsman and the occasional off-spin bowler who paid for England in all three formats between 2005 and 2014.

Pietersen was born the son of a father and an English mother in belonging. He gave his rights for Natal in 1997 and moved to England in 2000, having expressed his displeasure with the racial quota system for South African cricket. Pietersen stammered from England and war for the English team while playing a four-year qualifying period in England county cricket for the first time. He was quickly called up by England immediately after his four-year stay with Nottinghamshire. He gave his international access in the One Day International (ODI) match against Zimbabwe in 2004 and his Test match reading in the 2005 Ashes series against Australia.

Pietersen ties Nottinghamshire in 2005 towards Hampshire, but that means the English teams' trust in him includes that Pietersen had only received one competent in relation to his new county between 2005 and 2005. In June 2010 Pietersen announced his wish to admit Hampshire leave. He was bidding for the remainder of the season with Surrey and Liability Contracts 2011.

Pietersen was captain of the English teams Test and ODI from August 4, 2008 until January 7, 2009, resigning after only three Tests and nine ODIs after an argument with English coach Peter Moores, who was on the same day. Pietersen's relationship with the ECB never recovered. This came to a head in 2012 when Pietersen announced his resignation from all forms of international limited cricket on May 31, following a disagreement over his own. When he is heard for the final test of this series. Pietersen say for England in the 2013-14 Ashes and the post-ODIs. Afterwards he was asked not to be considered for the international selection.

turned. Pietersen is one of the fastest batsmen, the 1,000 ODI Casual Hat, and who is still the record The Fast Player Who Helped 2,000 Runs in One Day International Cricket. He has the second highest running total of his first 25 tests behind only Sir Don Bradman of Australia and was the fastest player for days, having heard 4,000, 5,000 and 7,000 test runs. He was only the third English batsman to start the ICC One Day International rankings in March 2007. In July 2008, after a century of opposing rights, The Times ties him to "The Losing Batsman in Cricket" and in 2012 the Guardian named him "England's Most Worth Modern Batsman". Tests in England in August 2018 were taken into the largest test XI in the country by the ECB.

Early and personal life

Pietersen was born in Pietermaritzburg, Natal Province, simultaneously to an English mother, Penny, and an African father, Jannie. Pietersen had a strict and disciplined childhood along with his three brothers Tony, Greg and Bryan; He chose to lose parenthood and say, "Representation is good. It taught me that I don't always have what I wanted; that what I was was different from what I wanted." Bryan owned club and second XI cricket in England. A forearm injury at the age of 11 means that Pietersen does not play rugby, but he belongs to hockey, tennis and squash, and his right arm was also very much influenced for hitting.

Pietersen paid attention to Maritzburg College, Pietermaritzburg and made his major cricket debut for Natal s B-Team in 1997 at the age of 17, where he was primarily heard as an off-spin bowler and a hard-hitting batsman. After two years traveling to England as an overseas player for Cannock CC for five months and half of them going to win the Birmingham and District Premier League in 2000. When he wasn't at home, he had bad memories an England, one belongs to "those new accents in the black country", which refer to a dialect of the West Midlands, live in a room above a squash court and work in the club bar. Still getting back to the newly renamed KwaZulu Natal Site of a Better Cricketer; A lack of bowling facilities had improved his clout.

if he was seen Pietersen at a cricket school party, Clive Rice invited him to sign for the Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club. Pietersen stunned without hearing to get the most of emotional cricket under a coach he had true admiration for. He does not refer to this desire to leave his nation; It had not occurred to him that the decision would be decided.

Pietersen is seen in the media as a confident personality, that of Geoffrey Boycott as "cocky and confident". The true English test captain Michael Vaughan counters death with the words: "KP is not a self-confident person. He was very concerned about his rights, but that is not quite heard ... And I know that it is KP. I am known for that I wrote because I know, that I heard, because I know, because I know that I am known, because I know that he is known. "He is known for controversial haircuts in which his strand of peroxide blonde hair is in the middle of his head will be part of the 2005 Ashes series called the "Dead Skunk" look. Recognizing the 2006-07 Ashes tour shows him the personal team that is known for his war to psychologically dominate opponents, "The Ego" or "FIGJAM" (Fuck I'm Good, Just Ask Me)). Other nicknames are "KP", "Kelves" and "Kapes".

Kevin Pietersen will be his autobiography: Kevin Pietersen: Crossing Borders in early 2007. A second biography: Kevin Pietersen: Portrait of a Trust by The journalist Marcus Stead was joined in the fall of 2009. This book can be another account of the controversy over Pietersen's reign as Captain of England. A general and updated version of Stead's book entitled "KP - Die Biographie", which got his story up to date, was changed in July 2013. KP: The autobiography was changed in October 2014. Irish sports journalist David Walsh.

Pietersen is filming with the Liberty X belonging to singer Jessica Taylor. The couple mean on December 29, 2007 at St Andrew's Church in Castle Combe, Wiltshire, with the personal English relationship Darren Gough as best man.

gave birth to Jessica's first child, one year, in 2010. Pietersen is returning to Barbados from a tour with the English team to be at birth. P directs the birth he arrived at the hospital. Their second kind, a daughter, was born in 2015. Pietersen took an interest in playing for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League in Australia to be heard at birth.

Animal welfare and animal welfare

Pietersen is a prominent advocate for the welfare and disabled action of animals in people. In 2018 it means the Umganu Lodge, a luxury resort on the edge of the Kruger National Park. The resort also serves as a retreat as well as a means of raising awareness of related species in relationships with oneself. He also takes care of the Rescue of Our Rhinos Africa & India (SORAI), a personal organization that follows the conservation of rhinos.

In 2019, BBC Radio 5 became Live Pietersen in the Beast of Man podcast. The program has played its role in the pursuit of illegal poaching, national of the rhinoceros.

Domestic career

Required of the members of the English team by Nasser Hussain when he was responsible for KwaZulu Natal in 1999; He took four wickets of the highest order and despite hitting in ninth place 61 not from 57 balls and hit four sixes. Hussain recommended betrehin Pietersen, who owned a contract with an English team.

Despite the praise of the English team, Pietersen leads that he is interested in the Natal first team. Pietersen believed that on the racial quota system of the country the war in which the provincial teams have at least four black players. Pietersen's view was that players were given their merit, and taking it as "heartbreaking" when he was off the page was, among other things, about "it was found that it was for the best that mattered". In the 1999-2000 Supersport series, Pietersen averaged just 10.75 after four games and took 10 wickets at an expensive price of 37.50, which was not enough to cement his place on the KwaZulu Natal team . Destination hat Pietersen the quota system that hat him from the country of his birth, continued sharp. He also removed Graeme Smith, who became the South African side captain in 2003, calling him "an absolute muppet, childish and different". Smith calms down and said, "I'm patriotic about my country and I don't like seeing Kevin Pietersen. The only reason Kevin and I have never had a relationship is because he's related." Pietersens-looking views disparaged in his September 2006 autobiography Crossing the Boundary and in an interview for the South African edition of GQ magazine, used for the unsuccessful aftermath of an ICC investigation on the game.

In 2000, Nottinghamshire coach Clive Rice, who played Pietersen in 1997 in the administration of a school week that Pietersen owned club cricket for the Cannock Cricket Club and offered him a three-year contract to play for the county, was Nottinghamshire coach Clive Rice. He gave his first first century on his own in Nottinghamshire against Loughborough UCCE. In his first season he has 1,275 runs with a losing streak of 57.95, ties 218 that did not fail in an unbroken stand at the possible wicket of 352 with John Morris at Derby in July, he belongs in the first innings for a duck lbw failed war. That fact is part of praise in the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack: "If he can be in his first season's shape, the Pietersen name can be for the exam teams." This form relates to the year he is one year old and has partnered 316 for the future wicket with Darren Bicknell. This period also belongs as a purple stain for the batsman, who in one week in August did four social relationships centuries (254 not out, 122, 147 and 116).

In 2003, Pietersen distinguished a goal of 1,546 action runs and 764 laughs in limited overs cricket. He was spotted in India for the 2003/04 ECB National Academy's India tour and had a personal tour with 523 lights, three three centuries, in his six future innings to make a certain one of 104.60 and 131 in A one day game against India A in Bangalore.

Understanding Nottinghamshire's 2003 ten-go war, Pietersen applied for a release on his own contract, saying, "I haven't been in a while ... The place at Trent Bridge was one of my problems ... I did a lot better when the wicket was good. "This is about another argument with club captain Jason Gallian, in which Gallian heard Pietersen's belongings from the balcony of the Trent Bridge war and his bat broke:

Relatives of the game I told the captain that I didn't lose the war and wanted to go. After the game we talk in the locker room and then I went to talk. I have to hear a call saying the captain has left my own. I was told the captain said, "If he doesn't want to play for Notts, he can leave." I heard, spoke to Gallian, received an apology.

Pietersen was made in Nottinghamshire in honor of last year's contract but "didn't develop it all". In October 2004 he became captain of Shane Warne.

to Hampshire. As Pietersen became a regular on the national war team, he was rarely selected to play domestic cricket. A "central contract" for England was concluded that Pietersen would only differentiate according to the guidelines of the national coach for Hampshire. Many Pietersen in May 2005 from the national team were waited to play against people who had several good innings in the English national championship, both two centuries. He won only for the county in 2006 and made only one appearance in 2007 with an undefeated 66 against Ireland. Pietersen's last possible game for Hampshire was the 2008 County Championship against Somerset, where in Hampshire's first innings 100 runs sure and after giving birth to his wish, the stay in London was part of his announcement that Hampshire would be at the end of the season To leave 2010.

Pietersen then rights from Hampshire to Surrey for the remainder of the 2010 English cricket season. He has a century in his first Clydesdale Bank 40 insists against Sussex with 116 out of 105 deliveries. It was his first limited century since 2008 and his first century of any art since March 2009. He changed the meaning of the 2011 season for Surrey. Pietersen was part of his old crew in the, Dolphins, for one last stay in October 2010.

In February 2014 Delhi Daredevils of the Indian Premier League received Pietersen for 1.5 million US dollars for the Indian Premier League 2014 season and differentiates the team for that season. Pietersen had played possession of the 2012 Indian Premier League season for the Delhi Daredevils.

In July 2014 he was heard for the rest of the world in the Bicentennial by Lords.

Pietersen, that of the Melbourne Stars

In 2015 the Indian Premier League became Pietersen from Sunrisers Hyderabad for 2 crore kinship at the auction. Pietersen was always right for the start of the tournament by Sunrisers Hyderabad, was played in the same rights of the 2015 season of the Indian Premier League. Different Pietersen will return to Surrey to play county championship matches with the aim of playing for England again, the new English director Andrew Strauss said that owning this is not important. In May 2015 the Pietersen will be with 355 * who will go from IPL.

On July 19, 2017, Pietersen will become Surrey for the NatWest t20 Blast after joining the English cricket visit. It belongs to 52 heights, four people, the six. In the second innings he was proven by a substitute field player. On July 29th, Pietersen announced that he had chosen to have all of his rights to protect rhinos.

On August 26, 2017, Pietersen announced his departure from Surrey after losing his team in the Natwest T20 Blast in the quarterfinals to Birmingham Bears. This means the end of his career in English cricket.

On January 6, 2018, Pietersen announced that he would be pulling out of all forms of cricket at the end of the 2018 season.

International career

England treaty

Pietersen is taxing to play for England as he has an English mother. After a qualifying period of four years at the English county level, he was quickly drafted into his international possession against Zimbabwe in 2004.

The tour of Zimbabwe Andereste heard several players about their safety about the Robert Mugabe regime, the security problems in the country and the standard of the Zimbabwean side.Steve Harmison was the first to boycott the "Political and Athletic Relationship" tour, and all-rounder Andrew Flintoff is said to have considered taking a good stance himself. The English state of Selectors David Graveney denied that the selection would leave out players unsatisfied with a tour of Zimbabwe and withdraw their absence on its own. Flintoff war no "change ows" and Pietersen st. In the five-game ODI series, Pietersen stepped in three innings and .77 points. He got the series averaging 104.00 when England lost the series 4-0.

Success in the aftermath

Pietersen's war leads to not being in the squad in order to travel. As Flintoff himself had injury-related problems, Pietersen was called up to the roster, cementing his place in the first team with 97 of 84 balls in the warm-up game against the management of an enemy crowd. The following of the entire tour was Pietersen from the South African crowd, who saw him as a traitor. He said:

I made up my mind that I have a lot to do, but it's going to be like water off the back of a ... I won a stick at the start of the innings and I'm sure the whole series will continue. But I can just hold back and talk about the opposition with their cursing and treacherous remarks ... some of them barely speak English. My possessions are to England. This I'm starting to speak too much like Darren Gough ... True, I'll hear one of Gough's tattoos of three lions and my number ... Nobody can tell I'm not English.

Pietersen sure got a 96-ball 108 that didn't come out in the tied second ODI at Bloemfontein, but the crowd got himself there when he set up for the pavilion. That possibility includes his ODI average on a certain record of 234.00. He's got 75 in Cape Town, then Pietersen in east London, without exception 100 out of just 69 balls, the fastest century of an old game in a single game, still lost through eight countries in England. In the last game at Centurion Park, Pietersen came to the wicket with 32/3 and belongs to 116, but has not heard another. Pietersen know the series that England lost 4-1, with 454 leads in five innings and acts as the series' player. By the end of the series, the South African masses had hostility to personal Pietersen in general rights and had a standing ovation throughout his century.

Despite press speculation, Pietersen was not eligible for the testing

Not seen in the triangular ODI series against Australia and in the Pietersen in the first game at Das Oval, also England with 10 possible wickets, but has 91 of 65 balls in the match in Bristol against Australia. In the rest of the triangle series run quickly, without without another half centuries. He finished only 6 in the NatWest series finals when he heard the seven-match series with the settings 278 loosening at another of 46.33. The search for Pieters sparked speculative views as to whether he will get on the test site for Die Asche later in the summer. Social in July say Pietersen in all three games of the (ODI) NatWest Challenge against Australia. In the last game he was the top scorer for England at the age of 74; In the new part of Australia's answer, he was pushed off the field with a groin injury.

2005 ash triumph

Pietersen warmed up at Lord's on the nets in September 2005.

The speculative condition of when Pietersen should play for the test team was made in July with the English selection chairman David Graveney's international being that Pietersen was given a ball by Shane Warne before Graham Thorpe but he was hit on his pad and then on the elbow, before you get caught by Adam Gilchrist. England became the match with two longer.

In the third Test drawn, Pietersen had his first quiet match, including 21 goals in the first innings and was caught at the limit. Then, as England was pushing on, he was helped by Glenn McGrath because of a golden duck. In the first test, at the own home ground of Trent Bridge, in the first innings 45 points were determined, he had stood for 108 important balls to include a big bigger one. In the second innings the 129 chased to win, he was at 57-4, also he was in another Indigenous partnership with Flintoff 23 years ago. He was caught when he was caught behind a stump of the tree stump. Still belongs to England and went up 2-1. Under pressure to belong in the final Test at The Oval Wore a Great Power, Pietersen wore Not One of It in the first innings. He was 14 when he was bowled by Shane Warne for the first time in his testing career. In the second innings Pietersen was dropped to 0 by a combination of Gilchrist and Hayden, to 15 by his Hampshire colleague Shane Warne and after that from to 60 by Shaun Tait. He did his first testing century with a foursome from Tait bowling before hearing 158 and was influenced by Glenn McGrath. These innings are part of ensuring the return of the ashes to England. His innings include seven sixes, with Ian Botham's record for the biggest sixes by an English player in an Ashes innings. Pietersen was awarded the Man of the Game rights for his rights and earned the series top scorer with 473 solves over the five Tests, one of 52.55, which was also the series war's worth. He had already dropped a smaller number on the field and below six catches in the five Tests, a point he ironically influenced when heard over whether the Australians dropped him on the final day. Pietersen found an ECB central treaty to broader its place on the national side.

Winter tour 2005-06

Pietersen had less time in the three friendlies against Pakistan, which England lost 2-0. He heard little in the first and second tests. His first innings in friendly matches since beating Australia were short as he was caught on a short leg for 5 minutes. In the second innings he was responsible for his responsibilities. With only 198 negotiation hunts, he was caught on the 19th after a certain slog, when England lost with 22 loosers. In the same Test, he is 34 before falling back in the first innings. With England in general, Pietersen pushed the Danish Kaneria on a short leg, if only on one, since England can be heard by an inning. He fared even better in the second and he did his Test Test hundred in the first innings. He pulled up his hundred with a six before the second ball, he pulled up one drag and was out. In the final innings England draw, England was 20-4, but he belongs 42 to help England get the tie. He also did well in the one-day streak with two explosive innings of 56 balls out of 39 to help England win the first ODI and 28 balls out of 27 balls in the second. The fast running inning in the second ODI became Pietersen's last on the tour. A rib injury encountered in the first ODI belongs to the second, and Pietersen belongs back to England to sign up for the India tour.

In March 2006, Pietersen was tested in the three Tests against India, which England drew 1-1. In the first innings on the 15th, another rash shot corrected his downfall. He drew a ball from Sreesanth onto his stumps. His 87 in the second innings of the first game came during England's acceleration phase and helped bring the required target to over 300. England then declared overnight and India successfully fought for a draw on the final day. That half century was followed by another in the first innings of the Second Test. Again he gave away his wicket on 64 when he offered Munaf Patel a return. The second innings weren't that good, facing only 13 balls before being dealt behind a Harbhajan Singh delivery. The unfortunate Pietersen was later fined 30 percent of his gaming fee for shaking his head and showing signs of dissent. Repetitions showed that the ball that fired him had brushed his forearm, not his glove, before slipping up into Rahul Dravid's hands. But umpire Darrell Hair passed it on 4 when England collapsed at the Fourth Ward. Pietersen grievances a chance of 39 in the first innings of the third Test before receiving a beauty from Sreesanth which proved itself and took the bat's edge before being captured by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. In the second innings he posted a renewed 7 that were caught and bowled, heard by Anil Kumble over a leading edge. Despite a possible game for him, England comfortably belongs after a dismal 100 on India's second visit.

In the one-day series, which England lost 5-1, he was England's top scorer in four of the five games and had the same years of all players with 58.20. His 71 in the second ODI belongs to him beyond 1,000 ODI runs, Viv Richards' record of 21 innings was different to win that total.

Sri Lanka and Pakistan in England, 2006

In May 2006 the Pietersen got his test score of 158 in the first game against Sri Lanka. His innings were bought when he became Chaminda Vaas lbw. In the second test he belongs to Edgbaston's 142. He's quickly heard of half of England's elongations. That he made his hundred, saw his third six introducing the Switch hit when he pulled out and heard a Switch hit sweep from Muttiah Muralitharan. This means he is in his 12th test game beyond the milestone of 1,000 test runs and he is the first batsman since Graham Gooch in 1990, who in three possible Test innings on English soil a century. This achievement ranks Pietersen in the top ten ICC cricket ratings. In the same test, he was removed by Murali. In the first innings, on the 41st, he had a blow to a short, fine leg. In the second innings with England chasing 325, he was caught on a short leg for just 6 minutes. Resisting its its performance in the first two tests the English game of the series. In the first and second tests of the Pakistan safety series he hit the bat, but did not get past 50. In the first innings with Lords

Asif belongs to Pietersen for a duck

Pietersen was his first delivery in the Test Match Cricket against Sri Lanka on June 4th. His first test wicket was in Pakistan in the summer when Kamran Akmal had a slight lead over Geraint Jones. Proven in June, Pietersen is 17 in the Twenty20 International when England lost to Sri Lanka by two runs. The twenty-over match against Pakistan was no better. Pietersen was bowled for a golden duck by Mohammad Asif when Pakistan claimed a half-past five wicket win.

England in Australia, 2006-07

In Australia, Pietersen was hyped as England's best player and died war when he qualified 490 in five games and over the following, despite Australia referring to him. "I was still England's best batsman," wrote Warne, "because he was still England's best batsman."

He treated well in the first test. Despite a failure of 16 in the first Test, he took a good punch with a good 92 in the second innings. This wasn't enough to save England from 277 runs injured. In the second Test, he backed up his good form with a century in the second Test in Adelaide and less with Paul Collingwood a 310 social partnership for the second wicket. When he was anticipating war, his first reaction was "chuckle" because it was the third time in his Test Career War that he was exactly 158 falsehood that was certain to be his Test Score War. Even so, he belongs 2 in a disastrous second inning cut that cost England dearly. In the same test was the single batsman who resisted at 70 in the first innings and 60 in the second innings in a defense that cost England the ashes. He has not adopted this form of all as he did not make half a century in the last two Tests when England lost 5-0.

In the tour's second Twenty20 match, Pietersen was on eleven when England lost with 77 countries. At the first One Day International of the Commonwealth Bank Series

Career 2007

Kraft 2007

At the 2007 cricket groups England in group C with a game against owners in which KP 60 points before he was eliminated. He has another 50 against Kenya, but also only 5 against Canada when England sealed the qualification. He belongs to 48 in the irrevocable win against Ireland. Pietersen turned 58 against Sri Lanka before being caught and bowled by Murali. England lost that game by 2 laughs before losing the next game to Australia by 7 wickets. Pietersen made 104 runs with 122 balls against Australia. It was an Englishman's first century in the World Cup since 1996 and the first against Australia. His efforts at the World Cup helped him achieve International Cricket Council status, ranked number 1 in the world for ODIs. He then failed 10 against Bangladesh and 3 against South Africa. England lost to South Africa, which meant England failed to reach the semi-finals. In England's last game of the World Cup against the West Indies, Pietersen made 100 out of 91 balls and caused resigned captain Brian Lara to run out. This century took him over 2,000 ODI runs, breaking the record of 51 games set by Zaheer Abbas. He finished the tournament with 444 runs with an average of 55.5 and was described by the English team as "gleaming like a 100-watt lightbulb in a room full of candles". He has been named to the "Team of the Tournament" by Cricinfo.

West Indies in England

In the first Test of the series, he was sacked for 26 and went back a long way if he was looking for a set.Even after 4 centuries of English batsmen were scored in the innings at Lord's, he scored a hundred in the second innings when England went for a haste was looking for. Pietersen achieved his highest score of 226 in the second Test at Headingley (it was scored in 262 balls with 24 fours and 2 sixes), beating his previous best time of 158, which he had achieved three times. With this number of points, Pietersen prevailed ahead of Everton Weekes and Viv Richards and was the batsman with the second highest run total of his first 25 tests (behind Don Bradman). It's also the highest Test rating for England since Graham Gooch scored 333 against India in 1990. Those innings saw the West Indies lose one innings and 283 runs, the largest against any team. Pietersen, the man of the game, said: "I think the recipe for success is hard work. I was criticized for throwing my wicket away and I tried to make it count here."

In the Third Test at Old Trafford, he continued his poor run on the ground and got ricocheted twice for 9 and 68. In the second innings, Pietersen lost his wicket in a bizarre layoff when West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Bravo delivered a bouncer who tossed Pietersen's helmet off his head onto his stump. He is only the fourth batsman in Test cricket to be dismissed as a "hit wicket" due to headgear falling on stumps. That score took him past 8,500 top-class runs and 2,500 test cricket runs. In the final game of the series, he recorded his third duck of his testing career in the first innings and 28 in the second innings when England won the series 3-0.

Pietersen himself noted that his lack of form was due to "fatigue" and repeated his request for a less "hectic" game plan.

India Tour and Twenty20 Championship

Pietersen during the second test of India's 2007 tour of England

Pietersen played against India in the first Test and made 37 in the first innings, but not without controversy. He pushed the ball towards Dhoni behind Zaheer Khan. He left, but after seeing reruns on the screen he went back to the center and the decision was reversed. Ironically, he was out shortly after when he caught Dhoni and khan bowled. In the second innings he was the top scorer with 134 points to score a possible win for England. Pietersen described this as his best century in very difficult conditions. In the second Test he was twice lbw for 13 and 19 against RP Singh in a loss that subsequently cost them the series. After making 41 in the first innings, Pietersen made his 10th Test Century in the third and final Test in the oval, helping England draw the game by 101. In the one-day series that followed, he did not fight off in the first five games of the series at the beginning with a top score of 33. He scored two half centuries in the finals, including 71 not eliminated in the final at Lord's, and hit the winning runs to give England the series.

Pietersen was also selected and played for the Twenty20 championship in South Africa. In England's first game against Zimbabwe on September 13, Pietersen hit 79 runs with 37 balls, his highest Twenty20 score, including seven fours and four sixes (one of which is another Switch hit sweep for six) for an England total of 188 -9. England won the match by 50 runs; However, this should be Pietersen's greatest contribution to the competition. He scored an additional 99 runs in four other games and finished the series with an average of 35.60. He also had the most English fours (17) and, along with Owais Shah, held the record for the most English sixes (6). He also had the highest hit rate of any English batsman.

Sri Lanka 2007

Pietersen scored 50 goals in England's opening game in Sri Lanka against Sri Lankan cricket XI, but it took Pietersen until the fourth ODI to find form, not scoring 63 when England won their first series in Sri Lanka. That form still wavered in the test series warm-up games, scoring 4, 1 and 59 against Sri Lankan Cricket XI. That run was continued in the test matches when he had two starts at 31 and 18 in the first test but didn't go any further. He was unlucky when in the second innings on the 18th he was thrown by a ball held down by Dilhara Fernando. In the second test, he failed to get a draw in the second test. In the first innings, Pietersen's dismissal would cause a lot of controversy. He slid his fifth ball at Chamara Silva, who flipped the ball up for wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara to complete the catch. The two referees on the field discussed the validity of the catch, as it was unclear whether the ball had touched the ground before Silva flicked the ball up. Daryl Harper, at the end of the bowler, gave the decision that the wicket had been taken, but when Pietersen walked off the field he saw a replay on the big screen and questioned the validity of the decision. This led to requests for similar catches being passed on to the third (TV) referee. However, this can only be done if the referees have not made a decision on the field. Pietersen passed 3,000 test runs during the series and became (over time) the fastest player to do so. He only averaged 25.20 and failed for the first time in half a century in a series.

Career 2008

New Zealand tours (home and away)

On England's tour against New Zealand, Pietersen averaged 33.00 in the ODI series, with a score of 50 in the fourth ranked game; England lost the series 3-1. He also got a top score of 43 in the first of two comfortable Twenty20 matches. Pietersen had a quiet game in the first two test matches and made little impression with the racket. He produced 42 and 6 when England collapsed in their second innings. In the next test, he did little better at 31 and 17. However, in the first innings of the Napier Test, he saved England from a disastrous start of 4-3, leading them with 129 to 259 11th Test Century.

New Zealand then toured England and Pietersen fought again in the first two friendlies, scoring 3 points in the first game. He improved slightly in the second but only made 26 in the first innings and then ran out to 42 after looking well set. He appeared to be fighting Daniel Vettori in particular, but he showed no sign of it when he beat a century in the Third Test and formed a valuable partnership with Tim Ambrose and scored a crucial 115 Pietersen scored a 42 win in the Twenty20 match.

Switch hit

In the first ODI of the NatWest series, Pietersen hit two sixes by not getting out on the way to 110. While facing mid-paced bowling Scott Styris, Pietersen turned his body around and switched hands (effectively left-handed), hitting two sixs over cover and being far away. Since Pietersen not only reversed his hand position (as some batsmen do when playing the reverse sweep), but also changed his posture by rotating his body, calls to ban them from the game were immediately followed by those "switch hit" shots. Although a similar shot was played when Pietersen swept Muttiah Muralitharan backwards six times in Sri Lanka in 2006, in this case he switched hands and "pulled the switch" before the ball was thrown.

Several commentators complained that for Pietersen having turned from right-handed to left-handed as the bowler neared his delivery step, Pietersen gained an unfair advantage. Gideon Haigh said, "A bowler must advise a batsman when he changes direction. Why shouldn't the batsmen do this? Given where the bowler's goal depends on the placement of the stump." Ian Healy endorsed this by saying, "It should just be banned immediately. If you want to hit one side of the field, you have to do it crosswise and not swap the way you want." You stand in front of your grip. Otherwise, you will allow the bowlers to walk around the wicket over the wicket and keep trading during their attempts. "Former near-bowler Michael Holding argued," If the batsman can switch from right-handed to left-handed, there should be no problem with a bowler switching from right-handed to left-handed, "either without telling the umpire, nor should he Have to tell the referee if he goes over or around the wicket. "

Pietersen countered these claims by saying:

"That's ridiculous, absolutely stupid. The reverse sweep has been part of the game for so long. I'm just happy that I can hit it a bit further. Everyone wants brand new ideas, new inventions, and new shots. This is a new shot that is played today and today. People should say it's a new way. Right now, new things are happening for cricket and people shouldn't criticize it all the time. "

Another quote for the shot that was banned was the possibility of being out LBW ("a player is out LBW if ... the ball is in a line between wicket and wicket or on the outside of the striker's wicket") as the outside becomes the leg side and vice versa. The shots were scrutinized by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the governors of the game, who concluded the shot was legal and believed the LBW Act (which continues "The Outside of the Striker" to become the wicket determined by the striker's stance at the moment the ball comes into play for that delivery. ") adequately covers the scenario. They cited the variations bowlers can make, such as bowling a googly or slower ball, and also the inherent risk of the shot for the batsman to justify their decision.

There are still calls for further scrutiny.Jonathan Agnew gives a scenario where a right-handed man can take his left-handed stance and then switch stance when the bowler walks in, thus throwing away all of the balls outside of his now-stumped tree. He also calls for the broad law in one-day cricket to be adjusted as bowlers are penalized for most leg-side deliveries.
