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 now plays 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 sure to dominate this coming BBL|04 season.
