WTF??

Pieterson has resigned, all hell has broken loose, West Indies tour is two weeks away, no coach, no Captain, and now the laughing stock of International cricket....

Madness! Utter lunacy!

Pietersen had an ego. It's probably for the best he resigned.
Moores never had total respect of the team cos he had little or no international experience.
Andy Strauss/Flower will hopefully be a better foil.

He was too up himself having "power". A captain puts his team before himself but he wanted to be the ultimate showman.

They should have given the captaincy to Strauss when Vaughan was injured and Strauss took over during the Pakistan series over here

Best thing to happen in my opinion, Pietersen was never a natural leader and was totally inexperienced for the job. As for Moores the man was a total joke players had no time for him and to let himself get involved with a public spat with the captain is in excusable.......

Strauss is a natural leader and has had years of experience as a captain, from his debut he has been known as FEC "Future England Captain".

Not so sure about Flowers could work out ok but i see it as a caretaker role, the man i want to see as England coach is Nasser Hussain........

Ok i'll talk about cricket (even if athletics is WAY better!)

Can you name all 10 ways to get out in cricket without googling them gza then? I can and i don't even like the sport. Amazing what you get drummed into you at PE college :rolleyes:

I do nominally support Kent though cos i was born there and my brother, dad and grandma are all big fans!
