Speaking of KP’s online coaching course - that features a complete eBook, streaming videos and content - it is out now. Make sure you enrol.

PitchVision Academy Becomes the Official Home of Kevin Pietersen Online Coaching

I ‘m delighted to announce that Kevin Pietersen’s online coaching courses Keep Calm and Smash It are now available exclusively on PitchVision Academy.

As you know, back in January we announced KP was revealing his methods in his first ever online coaching courses. And since then it’s been a feast of KP action on the site as a preview to the main event.

Now the wait is over: Keep Calm and Smash It courses are now available.

Click here to enrol.


Get them while they are hot.

Production values have never been higher as the videos are professionally produced and the content never more accessible or relevant to your needs.

The best bit is that the courses have been designed to teach you to teach yourself. Worksheets allow you to customise KP’s advice to your specific situation so you can make the most of every training session.

A current international has never talked in such detail while still being involved in the international setup.

Finally, no coaching book has ever taught you how to play KPs famous switch hit. Now you can learn it from the man himself.

Cricket Show 152: Kevin Pietersen Interview (Part 2)

As part of the launch of Kevin Pietersen’s Keep Calm and Smash It online videos and eBook, the show has a distinct KP feel.

The main interview is part 2 of the chat we had with KP (click here for part 1).

The questions section also has a batting bent; as six hitting and putting away bad balls on the back foot is discussed. Plus we look at how a top performing International like Kevin reviews past tours and looks to the future with intent.

Batting Goal Setting is About More Than Your Yearly Run Target
Ask any sports psychologist whether setting goals for sporting achievements are right or wrong and they will answer yes and no.
What do they mean?

Why the Coach is Wrong (and What the Captain Can Do About it)
Your coach is wrong.

He keeps doing things that go against what you believe. And it’s not helping you, or the team that you captain, improve.

But you have to work together because winning teams are built on a strong relationship between the leaders.

So what do you do?
You make it about the big rocks.

You see, when most coaches and captains have a clash of personalities you soon find it’s not as epic as it first seems.
