Honour,team spirit etc. For the love of god ! We don't leave in the medieval age, if winning isn't important why bother to support a team ? No,lets have a amicable XI , or maybe have a BOYS SCOUTS GETTING ALONG WORLD CUP ! KP is a prima Donna but lots of successful people are, is the human nature in one way or another, he isn't the best in the XI , but he is the one that's makes the difference !
Is there anybody out in cyberspace who wants to discuss the England party to tour India?Or am I alone?Are you there Major Tom?
Why are we constantly having forums on KP? Look at the other headlines on the page:England ready for India challenge = No forumIndia v England Key issues for the test tour = No forumObviously going on and on about KP is more interesting to the BBC, than the current team playing in India! KP is not in the team, can we please focus on the players that are.
Look, lets not forget the Aussies next year! What a fantastic time for KP to come back and "prove" himself at their bowlers' expense! I would bring him back just in time for the Ashes!
Well look, there are far too many SA players in the England team anyway which is a disgrace, let the home grown lads have a chance, it's like the Man City of the cricket world..Also, lets face it, he's a bit of a muppet who is completely up himself, we don't need that kind of person in the ranks thank you very much!

If these letters are representitive of the FANS views and the ECB take note of them then I think he can forget the NZ trip. Sadly he has had some bad advice and said advisors now seem to be worrying that they have killed their golden goose. His IPL fees will soon fall if his international career ends. I'm sure the advice rats will soon leave (parasites generally do).
more KP inflicted on us guess each game will be headlined: KP not playing, wishes he was and by the way England are playingKP would have made it a better England winKP would have made the difference and stop England lossing-please have a week or even a day not telling us what KP thinks wants wished regrets and focus on the cricket being playedstart telling us about those actually playing
wonder how much damage Piers Morgan has done to KP with his stupid advice.Its no good the captain saying soothing words in KP's ear...which i can see strauss doing, he struck me as the kinda guy who would calm things down.If Mr poison (Piers Morgan) is whispering in KP's other ear
If he goes to New Zealand (and I hope he does) lets hope he leaves his ego behind...
nowhereman111 - Look mate if you're going to comment on here at least get your facts right. Pietersen's average for the last 3 years (2010-2012) is 48.44. That's 1 run below his career average which you reckon was built on his early career record against weak opposition?! What such as Aussie team containing Warne and McGrath? Even when we lost 5-0 he was our best player averaging over 50.
NO. NO. NO. He does not deserve to be in the team on form alone for the past 3 years. All reputation, no substance. And don't quote me his average which is founded on his early career against weak opposition.NO. NO. NO. He has no place in the team as he is not a team player.
What KP has always brought to the party is that ability, through his often unorthodox batting, to take a game away from the opposition at pace, allowing the other batsmen (Trott, Cook, Bell) to play at their own pace without trying to force the issue. Without him, that leaves only Prior to do this role. England do need KP back, and I fear that the India series will bring this into sharper focus.
