Regular readers will know i am not a fan of the T20 format, i avoid watching it unless nothing else is on.
However, there is one reason i will be keeping a close eye on this years World T20 competition, according to WisdenIndia and their post it could be very worth listening to:
"Kevin Pietersen is not travelling with the England team for the World
T20, but he will be watching them defend the title he helped them win in
2010 from close quarters. ESPN STAR Sports (ESS) confirmed that
Pietersen will join their commentary team for presentation and analysis
during the tournament in Sri Lanka that starts on September 18."
KP is quoted :
“I am very excited about working with ESPN STAR Sports covering the ICC World Twenty20 watching England defend their title,”
It goes on :
"Peter Hutton, the Managing Director of ESS, expressed his delight at securing Pietersen’s services.
“We’re delighted that one of the world games biggest names is part of
our team, and look forward to hearing the insights of someone who knows
the format and knows the current stars inside out,” said Hutton."
What could possibly go wrong?
