Pietersen's autobiography is actually surprisingly good. The book doesn't focus on his first 12 months of international cricket, but his childhood in South Africa, his battles with the South African quota system with Natal and then his eventual move to England with Cannock CC, Notts, England and then Hampshire. It's a very well written book, and I really enjoyed it, so much so that I've now read it 3 times. Probably helps that Pietersen is far and away my favourite player in the world though.

Buy your BF the new England Twenty20 Shirt, tis the sex of a shirt, looking forward to getting it myself. All 3 new England shirts are nice actually, might end up buying all 3 :P.

India shirts >>

Why does the red one look like a Man Utd shirt :confused:

India Nike Shirts are the 'sex', as you put it

I only prefer worldcricketstore when buying shirts. I don't think I've ever used it for buying anything else.

I want the Nike shirt. I've got the WC99, WC03 and the Sahara one (from 2002).. but the Nike shirt looks cool.

Official one, from Nike Stores in India cost about £25...they are like £55 here!

I prefer the Sahara one though, I like the paint-splashed look. The Nike one isnt' the most flattering, especially after a meal...:p:

Fiction is good to re-read after a couple of years, but KP's autobiography was only out a couple of years ago and you've already read through it 3 times?! Why would you read an autobiography three times? Just curious.
