In some breaking news coming in Kevin Pietersen or ‘Maverick’ as we know him by has decided to say his ‘final goodbye’ to the game he loves the most and we love to see him play the most. Yes, you read that right.
Kevin who was controversially axed after the 2013- 2014 debacle and a few other issues which he had with the England Cricket Board. One of them also included the fact that he exchanged messages with the South African team talking all about a few of his English mates.
He might be the most hated by the Board but he is surely the most loved by not only the English fans but also fans worldwide. There has been no doubt that he has been one of the best batsman England have ever produced and the swagger he carried with him only added to his charm and fan- base. Can anyone ever forget that innings against India in Mumbai on a turning pitch?
Pietersen is currently busy playing the Big Bash League representing the Melbourne Stars who are still to post a win on the board having played as many as 4 matches. The former right-handed batsman from England is doing decently well though having scored 80 runs in 3 innings at a decent strike rate of 125.
He still has a few games left though and would surely like to end it on a high note by contributing as much as he can for the Melbourne Starts. An emotional KP resorted to the micro-blogging site Twitter and decided to share this news with all his fans.
He confessed that he cannot see himself playing cricket again by the time the Big Bash League starts again at the end of the year and considering he has already ruled himself out of the Indian Premier League, he thought its a good idea to call it a day.
Cric Crak would like to clap his hands and say ‘Well Done KP’ and ‘Thank You’ for all the entertainment over all these years. We all know what he has achieved and how much he means to cricket and how much cricket meant to him. They don’t make such men anymore. At least not in the United Kingdom. A batsman and a character like him will surely be missed and we shall leave it to that.
