KP could deliver something special in Durban Test: Strauss

Friday, December 25, 2009

Durban (S. Africa), - England’s best bat Kevin Pietersen is getting back to his best form and there are signs that he could deliver something special at his former home ground-Kingsmead in Durban.

The South Africa-born batsman has sought to re-establish himself in international cricket after four months out because of Achilles surgery. sked about the significance of Pietersen’s return and the likely favourable consequences for England, the Telegraph quoted captain Andrew Strauss, as saying: “I think his life has moved on a long way from when he was here as a youngster. But he might have a little bit more of a point to prove - as he often does in South Africa. The way he batted in Centurion, I’m quite confident he’s got something special for us this week.”

“I’m happy with the way he’s playing and with some of the adjustments he’s made,” said the captain.

“In cricket, there are times when it’s tough. I’ve been through it; just about every member of our batting unit has been through it at one stage or another. Ultimately it boils down to how much you’re willing to guts it out,” Strauss said. (ANI)
