Bio

One of the world’s most talked about cricketers, South-African born Kevin Pietersen had a distinguished career with the England squad over a golden period. 

A vital member of the 2005 Ashes win and again in 2010-11, the aggressive top-order batsman sits atop the all-time T20I runs scorers for England whilst being in the top-five for Tests and ODIs. 

Known for his class in the middle, he can just as easily whip a ball over cow corner than plant his foot and sent it over the bowler’s head. 

After a forgettable 2013-14 Ashes series, Pietersen was stood down from national duties and started playing Twenty20 cricket exclusively. 

With more than 3,000 runs at an average of 32.44 and a strike rate of 132.67 in Twenty20 Cricket – KP is an exciting addition to the BBL and Melbourne Stars.

Pietersen returned to county cricket in 2015 in an attempt to reignite his international career, but failed to regain favour with the ECB despite scoring an unbeaten 355 for Surrey.
