The tensions engulfing camp England have finally boiled over, and both captain and coach have walked out the door.
Whether or not he'd left of his own accord Pietersen would not have been allowed to stay on as captain. Cricketers must be subservient and not comment when they're uber-shitted off, it's just how it is. Just by saying "him or me" it was never going to be him.
Personally I'm disappointed. I was looking forward to Ponting and Pietersen squaring off.
And I bet Vaughan's wishing he'd pushed himself a bit harder these last few months.
It also seems to me like the tide is turning, and where last week observers were on KP's side, they now feel Moore's has been treated poorly; KP has betrayed his trust and this has all been most uncalled for.
Wow. Hissy fits. Cricket really does provide everything.
Ian Bell, anyone?
