The International Cricket Council and The Marylebone Cricket Club, the custodian of cricket’s laws have got another toy to play with. In a match between New Zealand and England, Kevin Pietersen did something extraordinary, and now these officials are jumping at their feet to earn their keep.
The right-handed Pietersen twice changed grips and switched to a left-hander’s stance against Scott Styris, pulling both deliveries for six. Experts of the field are as usual having a field day. Some are saying that this is typical and not an illegal thing and a new beauty, while the mandatory group is saying that its unfair, as bowler has to notify before he changes the stance.
A beautiful spokesperson of the MCC has said that, “Tomorrow our secretary Keith Bradshaw, our head of cricket John Stephenson and other committee members will be having a meeting and one of the things they are going to be discussing is Kevin Pietersen’s shot as the MCC have been asked to look at it by the ICC.”
It seems that now a days, MCC hasn’t got anything better to do.More on:england, icc, International Cricket Council, Kevin Pietersen, Marylebone Cricket Club, New Zealand, Scott Styris
