I agree with his comments as a whole. However, my respect for him has diminished considerably, because he considers the case of Pietersen and Trott to be different.

There is absolutely no was in which their cases are different. Both Pietersen (Natal, Kwa Zulu Natal) and Trott (Boland, Western Province) have played for domestic sides and both came to England in order to pursue higher honours for England.

Both did it for their own benefit, so I don't see how KP is different from Trott. I supposed he has let his bias against Trott cloud his better judgement when writing this article!

On the whole, it was a rubbish article by MV! :@


Ah, forgot to mention something yesterday. I remember reading, during England's tour of SA which concluded recently, that Pietersen actually played against the touring England side in 99/2000 in a tour match. Since MV was slated to make his test debut in that series, I'm pretty sure that he would've played in that match against Pietersen. I suppose MV wouldn't have noticed him then as KP was just an offie batting in the tail-end of the batting order! :D

Well spotted. MPV did indeed play in that game and even comments in his book about KP playing in this match

The Reverse Sweep

Yes, I am surprised that MPV chose to make a distinction between KP and Trott. Both as you say followed the same path. At the end of the day England has had a number of players (Smith, Lamb, Hick, DOlivera) who have been born in other countries and then come to play cricket for England. Its part of the modern world and the general trend of globalisation. It has not quite reached the extent of the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team who seem to take most of their players from Fiji, Samoa and Tonga.

I certainly agree with the point raised by Michael Vaughan.
