I heard someone on the Today programme say that Peterson considered joining the Navy , not to see the world, but to let the world see him! I do not closely follow cricket but it seems there are as many prima donnas in that sport as in soccer.
I never did really think him the right man for the job, an excellant and exciting batsman maybe, but so was Botham, and a captain needs much more than that. Perhaps someone more down to earth is needed. Hopefully Strauss will prove to be the right choice.
The media interest would have made it impossible for KP to have gone through the terminal unhindered. Who's going to argue with an armed policeman with an Heckler & Koch!!
So glad he's gone, we can now get a real captain & not some prima donna. Yes KP can bat but the influence of Shane Warne has brought this on! Strauss will make a better captain, is more focused & not such a poser as KP. Pity Moores resigned though i think he should have been backed by the ECB more!!
