• Pietersen slams English cricket

    Kevin Pietersen has called English cricket a f**king embarrassment after Ben Duckett was stood down from a tour game on Saturday.

    Duckett, who was selected to open the batting in England’s two-day tour match against a Cricket Australia XI in Perth, was dropped after being involved in an incident late on Thursday where he poured a drink over a senior player following a heated row. He has also been suspended.
