Kevin Pietersen MBE is a former English cricketer and was captain of the England Test and ODI teams . Pietersen became the fastest batsman to reach both 1,000 and 2,000 runs in One Day International cricket.He has the second-highest run total from his first 25 Tests, behind only Sir Don Bradman of Australia, and was the fastest player, in terms of days, to reach 4,000, 5,000 and 7,000 Test runs.
He became only the third English batsman to top the ICC One Day International rankings, doing so in March 2007.
Few cricketers have divided opinion like Kevin Pietersen. When he was unceremoniously dumped from England’s set up early in 2014, with lawyers at the ready on all sides, he was presented by those in authority as an egotistical individualist whose reluctance to respect those in charge forever undermined attempts to build a strong team ethic. Whatever view you held, Pietersen deserved to be recognised as one of the most captivating cricketers to ever play for England. His flamboyant strokeplay was at the heart of many of England’s finest performances for a decade. A brazen belief in his own ability, moments of outrageous unorthodoxy and, at times, a surprising vulnerability on and off the field have all combined to give him great box-office appeal.
Kevin is extremely articulate with stories detailing his triumph over adversity, his meticulous training and in-depth preparation, culminating in awe-inspiring perspectives.
