Kevin Pietersen had a word for the ECB

Kevin Pietersen is a flamboyant character, on and off the field. He speaks his mind and doesn't mind if what he speaks comes across as unsavoury. He has been in fine form off late, helping the Melbourne Stars make it to the Finals of the Big Bash league.

“It was hugely satisfying,” Pietersen said after being named man of the match for the semi-finals. “I went out with intent to win the game for the team. Luckily it came off. It’s always nice to perform in the big games.”

In the semi-finals he scored 62 runs off just 36 balls and in the final he managed 74 runs from 39 runs. One would think that this has made the entire world stand up and take notice.

Apparently the ECB is excluded from this.

Most shared picture on my social media platforms over the last 12 hours. #Awkward 😂

Awkward indeed. Athletes taking to social media to draw attention of selectors is nothing new. But Kevin Pietersen managed to do so with humour.
