Dropping Kevin Pietersen from the England Test team

We’re not a fan of this idea.

You might say that we’re too easily pleased; that we’d support any batsman who scored thousands of runs for England with unparalleled panache. But you’d be wrong.

There’s another thing. We once made Kevin Pietersen say ‘pie’.

You can’t buy an experience like that. Or maybe you can, but it wouldn’t feel so special.

There’s also the fact that five Test innings ago, the guy hit his highest score and did so in an Ashes Test. It’s not like he doesn’t know where his next run’s coming from.

He should bat at five though. That theory that he should aspire to bat at three betrays Britain’s wrong-headed belief that we should all seek out responsibility, as if responsibility is somehow a good thing.

Responsibility is not a good thing.

5 Appeals

  1. Responsibility is something you stick the new kid with. I say bat Pietersen at four and Trott at three and Bell at five.

    But then I also want Collingwood to continue playing Twenty20. I like unhealthy things, like pie.

  2. Are you sure he didn’t mean pi? Because that changes everything.

  3. How can pi change everything, it is a constant.

    It can operate as a scalar multiplier AT BEST

    • Pi CAN change everything, Howie. Imagine the cosmological constant was multiplied by pi. Life would have been impossible.

    • That could also mean multiplication changes everything
