There has been some utter garbage written about the ongoing situation between Kevin Pietersen and the ECB, much of it from the newspapers, whose “journalists” seem more intent on simple attempts at humiliation and muck raking rather than doing some decent investigative journalism and highlighting the flaws in the ECB’s handling of the situation. Others have made sly digs at KP in their writings when KP himself has no relevance to a story of a recovery from cancer. David Lloyd’s latest effort on ESPNCricinfo after today’s events is another pretty poor effort.
The only sensible writing on the KP issue Yates has seen so far have come from George Dobell, Michael Holding and Sambit Bal. Along with those writing for newspapers, many other former players talking about or writing about the game have singularly failed to provide any insight into the inner workings of the ECB top level management and the failures of Hugh Morris, Giles Clarke and David Collier.
