    What was he thinking?

    I can't believe the recent comments by John Buchanan about Kevin Pietersen - what was he thinking? "Not a team player" - who cares anyway particularly at this point? I heard, I think it was, Shane Warne in an interview last week, talking about sledging - he said "we all know there are guys you talk to and guys you don't...KP for instance you don't give any extra motivation...".

    So, in the lead up to a Test Match Australia would love to win to send off three champions and claim the Ashes series 5-nil, the coach comes out and gives the one guy who has shown enough this series to influence the outcome of a game in England's favour, just the ammunition he needs to fire up and play one of his "Oval" style innings - stupid! What was he thinking? If KP turns in a big score here, I think Messrs Warne, McGrath and Langer will be mightily pee'd off at their coach!

    Me neither. I know he's scored 450+ runs at an average of 58, but his alleged refusal to bat at #4 until his 8th innings of the series and his bemusing batting with the tail convinces me that he was never going to influence a series/test match significantly.
