Maybe we don’t need Pakistan cricket after all. We’ve got England for back-stabbing and intrigue now.
Officially, Kevin Pietersen and Peter Moores both resigned. Unofficially, well, does it matter what really happened, does it?
Those halcyon days of long-term planning under Duncan Fletcher seem longer ago and more valuable by the day. Not long ago, we looked at Australia’s selection policy and felt like maybe England were more organised. Now they have neither coach nor captain. Textbook. Well played England.
To a degree and for different reasons, both men deserve this. It’s said that Peter Moores didn’t acknowledge or allow for individuality in his players. Kevin Pietersen bought into his own column inches and threw his weight about.
