Bio

"An outrageous talent who cannot and will not be ignored"


When Kevin Pietersen made his Test debut for England no-one could have predicted the incredible mark he would leave on the game, apart from perhaps himself. And after taking the game to Australia in 2005 he has gone on the attack against every nation in the world, but he always manages to save some of his very best performances for the team wearing the baggy green. By the time this series is over he could have joined the greatest Aussie basher of the lot, Sir Ian Botham, in completing five Ashes series wins over the oldest enemy. A thoroughly modern cricketer with an IPL deal, big name endorsements and a pop-star wife, Pietersen remains traditional at heart. A family man with an eye on his and his team's Test legacy above all else. Already the scorer of more international runs across all formats than any Englishman before him, at 33 Pietersen is far from done yet."
