Filchester star and self proclaimed “greatest ever player” Kevin Pietsersen backs Australia to win the Ashes 2-1

He may not be in the England side playing the Ashes, but you simply can’t keep Kevin Pietersen out of action. While the Englishmen battle Australia for Test cricket’s ultimate prize the Ashes, Pietersen reveals that he will be busy with his with the East Anglian seventh division side Filchester CC.

In the hilarious Paddy Power video, Pietersen is seen smashing sixes against a group of old men as he goes on to predict the Ashes winner. KP says, “It’s going to be very tough and much closer than people think, but I think Australia will probably win – 2-1, I would say.”

Pietersen, who is seen riding a white unicorn in the video, pokes fun at his attempt to get back to the English side.

“I’m on a weekly contract at Filchester. If you need me just say the word and I’ll join you at the spiritual home of cricket Cardiff,” says the 35-year-old batsman.

Well, this may just be the beginning, so watch out for KP’s antics throughout the Ashes.
