Kevin Pietersen is wanted.
Kevin Pietersen is not wanted.
Rejected by the English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), the South African born cricketer makes his way to India to turn out for the Sun Risers Hyderabad despite making his highest ever first-class score, a classy triple ton for Surrey.
The 34-year-old is piqued indeed.
He cannot bridge the ‘trust deficit’ with the new director of cricket Andrew Strauss.
Has he done all that’s required? Has he been punished enough for all his previous ‘misdemeanours‘. The English public rooting for him certainly believe so.
Is he worse than a convicted spot-fixer? Surely not.
That begets the question, “What is trust?”
Trust , my friend, is personal. And this decision , my cricketing friends, is personal.
