Kevin Pietersen

Confident, hard-working and severely talented; Kevin Petersen’s phenomenal self belief can never have been more evident than hitting 158 on the final day of the last test at the Oval in the 2005 Ashes, securing England a first Ashes triumph in 18 years.

Since then he has built over 10,000 international runs with a highest score of 227. Currently he has scored 26 centuries and averages over 40 in ODI cricket. He was the fastest ever English batsmen to reach 1000 and 200 ODI runs and 5000 Test runs.
His incredible reverse sweep for 6 off Muralitharan at Edgbaston has developed into his trademark switch hit, another element of his game that keeps him in the highest echelons of World-class batsmen.
In 2009 KP became one of the most expensive cricketers in the IPL auction, signing for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He has since transferred to Delhi Daredevils for a staggering $2m.
In 2010 KP was named player of the tournament on the way to helping England win the ICC World T20.
His 227 In Adelaide in 2010 helped England win the Ashes in Australia, making KP a 3 time Ashes winner.
KP is a true success story, innovator and record-breaker in cricket.
