It has been quite a week for former England cricket star Kevin Pietersen, after being told on Monday he would not play for England in the upcoming Ashes series, where guest can enjoy Eventmasters official Trent Bridge hospitality packages for the fourth test. Eventmasters can also provide cricket hospitality packages for the Royal London ODI’s against New Zealand and Australia. Don’t miss out on our cricket hospitality packages.
It has been revealed that the 34-year-old will be unable to play in the Indian Premier League. Despite scoring 357 runs for Surrey in the County Championship at the Kia Oval, KP was informed by new England Cricket Director and former teammate Strauss that he would not be considered for selection, because of “massive trust issues”. Understandably Pietersen was hurt by the decision and launched a scathing attack on Strauss and executive Tom Harrison.
The decision has divided the opinions of cricket fans across the nation. Some believe his sheer class could be enough to help England strike fear into the hearts of the Aussies in the Ashes. While others believe he has burned too many bridges and that his presence would be detrimental to the side.
Now KP will be unable to fulfil his duties in the prestigious IPL, after calf and Achilles injuries ruled him out of the remaining games for Sunrisers Hyderabad. It is another blow for KP who is without doubt one of the most talented players to ever play for England. Before the Ashes England take on World Cup finalists New Zealand in the Royal London ODI’s in what promises to be a thrilling five match series.
