Kevin Pietersen’s mischievous SMS-ing has landed him in a soup with the England and Wales Cricket Board. The ECB has dropped him from the World T20 squads and we wondered whether the same treatment would be meted out to him if he was an Indian cricketer.
Instead of answering the question ourselves, we asked our Twitter followers.
So, if Pietersen was Indian, he would still be playing. Why?
The gold medal goes to @Oinkoo: for the 100th 100.
The silver medal goes to @aarsee: not if his name was VVS Pietersen. (get the joke?)
The bronze goes to @titash: Anglo-Indian Quota.
And the best of the rest are as follows.
@suar4sure: Max 5 SMSes . How much will he text ?
@parashah91: we are country of people who is always in need to making someone god
@shivom_oza: Because in our country, cricket has become a reality show. It just won’t work without ‘star’ power.
@Niranjan_Vn: We don’t have anyone else at No.3 right now.
