• KP: Dubai, not UK, should have hosted WTC final

    Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen has suggested the World Test Championship final should not have been played in the UK due to its unpredictable weather.

    Both the first day’s play, and Monday’s scheduled day four of action, were completely rained out in Southampton, putting a literal dampener on the highly anticipated inaugural WTC final between New Zealand and England.

    South African-born Pietersen, who played over 100 Tests for England, took to Twitter to suggest a neutral venue in Dubai should rather have been chosen for the final.
