So last chance to catch Sangakkara and Pietersen this summer.

Surrey are going to top the ticket sales this summer aren't they?

The England great is building a house in the Kruger National Park all of next summer. He'll obviously be available to take the call from the SA selectors and given the saffers recent performances, they certainly need him.
He hasn't played a game since February.

Cameo performance on the Apprentice tonight. Appreciated by the contestants.

What a guy!

This is the first time in years I've been jealous of an Apprentice treat. KP stole the show!

Looks like he's going to retire from playing at the end of the year.

I'm not surprised, he can barely run any more. It'll still be a sad day when we won't be able to see him bat again.

England still haven't covered his absence. Could/should have had 3-4 good years of test cricket out of him. Shame really.

His body would not have handled test cricket. He was sensible to become a gun for hire and work on his golf handicap. Did he eventually win a franchise tournament? Hope so - he deserves it to add to his international honours. It is a shame it ended badly and will tarnish his reputation as one of our greatest ever entertainers (and he was very very good)

Was? I suspect the Melbourne Renegades would say he still is after the way he destroyed them today.

I know his England career has gone and he's struggled with injury but he was genuinely the best batsman I saw in county cricket last year. Small sample size and everything as it was one innings I saw, but he was a different class to anyone else on that pitch and frigging Sangakkara was playing in that game. An absolute privilege to watch.
