I am pretty sure KP is responsible for global warming... or at least a major contributor to it (lot's of hot air).

I would love to see KP in the BBL, but I am not sure how he would react to the crowds... I am sure he would even get booed at the Furnace whilst wearing orange... for some reason Aussies hate him?

It is such a pity about KP being KP because he is easily one of the most fluent, destructive batsmen to play for England and is a joy to watch.

Yup not retained. Warner and kp could not agree on a salary. No doubt both get a higher price this time around

Do you perchance know what his last contract was for?  For some reason I think he got a reduced deal because of the ECB's schedule... but that oculd just be a figment of my imagination,

he would have done, but the reduction is done by pro rate-ing his stated salary for the percentage of the tournament that he is available, so if his stated salary was a million and he was available for half the games he'd get 500k

So the headline amount only of the deal is then pro rata'd?

According to the Telegraph (cringe) KP had a $2 million (1.2 million) contract with the Delhi Daredevils...

No, we only boo eastern staters, if he's wearing orange he's one of us!

PS - I think KP seems a magnet for critisism and perhaps a focus for the barbs from certain sections of the crowd.........where ever he goes, but Aussies do not hate KP as far as i can tell?

I love a bit of rock star about my sports stars.......false modesty is booring.......if people do get stuck into kp I'm the first to remind them that when qld was devistated by floods, kp put his hand in his own pocket and made a massive contribution and also mobilised his A lister friends who in turn donated to the relief fund very generously.......people forget about things like that........doesnt sell as many papers as the negative stuff........

can you imagine if kp retired from test cricket. it would kill the county game. the bowlers would just all retire crying.


didn't he return from injury and smash yorkshire for fun while he made 200?

You need to have a word to JL and get him signed up then!  The Scorchers need a replacement for Gibbs.  Do you know why Gibbs wasn't retained for BBL3?

The Scorchers are a bit light up top (especially with Shaun Marsh in the Australian ODI squad - that is if CA does not release him) do you have anybody ready to fly in... I think Carberry might be available!  Since Giles doesn't seem to want to give him a game for England right now!

There was a little bit more to the story than that in that he was out twice before he reached double figures and was dropped on 15 (the massive nick behind off Sidebottom on 0 was just embarassing, though it gave Stuart Broad ideas) - though the 200 after that were more or less candy from a baby stuff.

I think that innings is on youtube, awsome batting, made facing frontbottom look like hitting throw downs......

I suspect that had something to do with eh verbals after the caught behind incident, and the fact that the two did not get along when their international careers coincided. It wasn't so much that that impressed me though, as the way he dismissed Rashid, who bowled really well, on a turning deck.

If that is angry KP then somebody needs to bring Andrew Strauss and Naz Hussain back into the dressing room to fire him up before innings!
