England and the Pietersen Problem: What’s next?

After effectively ending Kevin Pietersen’s international career last year, the ECB has once again opened the doors for the star batsman’s return. A little too familiar? You bet. Ironic? Indeed. The cricketing world is tired of watching the KP-ECB saga unfold and it’s about time they put a permanent end to it. But, will they?

Colin Graves, ECB’s chairman-to-be, has offered Pietersen a way back into the England side. Of course, only if the stylish batsman scores heaps of runs in county cricket. That said, the 34-year old already has a deal with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL, along with St Lucia Zouks in the CPL. Whether he puts his country ahead of franchise cricket is KP‘s dilemma. But Graves has certainly put the ball in his court, for now.
 
Down under, England are having a horrid time staying put in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup. Three losses in their first four games speak volumes about the team’s potential. Pietersen’s absence has most definitely affected the team’s balance ever since England’s disastrous Ashes tour of 2013. Even as former teammates rule out a possible return, KP remains affirmative about his chances, saying he will ‘work’ on it. Graves’ decision to throw down an opportunity might have come at a wrong time. This has irritated the likes of Stuart Broad and other. They think the timing just isn’t right.
 
On a serious note, Pietersen’s value cannot be underrated. He has scored more than 12,000 international runs and boasts of a 40-plus average. Apart from being a phenomenal stroke-maker, KP has evolved as England’s game changer when the side desperately needed a hero. Time may not be on his side this time around, which makes us question Graves’ surprise offer. Yet, KP‘s exploits with the bat are far from over.
 
Give him that goddamn England jersey or shut the door upon him – but for heaven’s sake, let this be the final nail in the coffin!
