Kevin pietersen dating

Pietersen has been downgraded from an ‘A-plus’ central contract to an ‘A’ grade which will expire in September.

For those unfamiliar with Swift’s milieu, she is perhaps the biggest pop star in the world right now, with a uniquely broad appeal: straddling pop and country, old-fashioned songcraft and new-media savvy. Most of his attempts at light-hearted banter fell sadly flat. The discussion had turned to cats: Swift loved them, Cleese loved them, Pietersen did not. “In fact,” he said, “I’d prefer to be on safari watching animals, more than I’d like to be on this sofa, or playing cricket.” There was a slightly awkward pause, which was uproariously broken by Norton: “Charming! No wonder you fall out with people.” Later, when Swift was talking about some of the hysterical blogs that her fans had posted online, Pietersen interrupted: “I think we’ve found a reason why she’s single! ” You could have sliced the tension with a skunk hairdo.

Her latest single, Shake It Off, is an up‑tempo anthem about dealing with the haters whilst retaining a sense of humour. Later came a detailed account of the 2012 text-messaging controversy, and we were reminded just how esoteric cricket must seem to outsiders.

There are inmates at Guantanamo Bay who have been less rigorously interrogated than Pietersen over the past week.

"It seems encouraging but I've obviously got a few steps that I've got to climb. I've still got more decisions to make - it's weekend now so nobody will be picking up their phones, but (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) will be very exciting, hopefully." Pietersen also retweeted Telegraph Sport's revelation of his intention to play county cricket, together with the numbers 626 and 185 - his Test and ODI numbers for England.

It just makes perfect sense to explore different things - that's what I'm doing. A return to his most recent former county Surrey is the most likely outcome, although it is understood that six counties have expressed an interest in signing him since Graves opened the door to an England comeback.

He seemed destined to play out his career in Twenty20 tournaments across the cricket-playing world.
