Well said MPV for stressing the importance of playing for pride.
Also: how would KP and Piers feel if this time England avoided the same abysmal whitewash that happened last time? Presumably contemptuous of the team's attempt to regain respect. We must assume that in 2013/14 thoughts about team spirit, pride and respect did not trouble Kevin.
KP said now the series was gone they aren't playing for the glory they are playing for their places. Had anyone else said it I doubt it would have been controversial. Presumably you would give the team a ticker-tape parade on their return if they managed to win at the MCG and SCG?
