Well done the haterz, for your abuse of the only real choice for England captain at present.
and frankly, the ECB have to keep him onside. This sort of smells like cover up to me. I'm not sure why I'm so cynical, I want KP to be captain and for us to all live happily ever after. But i've been hurt now. Fool me one shame on you, fool me twice shame on me Kevin.
so that's good enough for me. Basically Moores is the reason for everything that's wrong in any sport. ever.
there was no way kev leaked the story, and thats the only thing he could have done wrong really. everything else was him doing his best in the interests of the team. if whoever it was/shane warne hadn't leaked the details of his conversation with Giles Clarke all would be fine.
I was listening to the radio yesterday morning and they were saying that the leaks definitely didn’t come from Pietersen, and that Flintoff and Harmison had tried to convince him to not resign, but according to today’s papers, Flintoff and Harmison were leading the group backing Moores over Pietersen.
I didn’t agree with Pietersen’s appointment anyway. He wasn’t tactically astute enough out there, and it was akin to appointing Kevin Keegan as the England manager.
the whole "two camps" within the squad thing is a massive simplification and not really true. Those players seemingly didn't think Moores needed to be sacked/step down, but at the same time were supportive of Pietersen's captaincy - rather than seeing it as either/or, they were in favour of both.
If KP didn't leak anything then the ECB need to find out where the leak did come from and deal with it.
I'm convinced he can do the job for all forms.
Shame - that would have been fun
