ICC Cricket World Cup 2015: Kevin Pietersen says that England aren’t playing their best team

Exiled English batsman Kevin Pietersen believes that England are picking the wrong team at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and haven’t been able to pile up scores of 400 or more.

Pakistan and Zimbabwe are the only sides whose average batting scores rank below England, and Pietersen gave reason for the same on Twitter. After South Africa piled up 411 against Ireland on Tuesday, Pietersen posted

Only Pakistan and Zimbabwe’s average scores batting first rank below England.

Pietersen took to Twitter to give the reason behind England’s failure at the World Cup. As reported by MiD-Day, he posted a comment after South Africa piled up 411-4 against Ireland in Canberra, “cricket lovers – if you don’t believe that world cricket has changed, then you never will! SA just scored 400 again in a 50 over game!”

Later, he replied to a comment saying, “@kingymoments: @KP24 but, but, but … Why can’t England?! Cos the best team isn’t playing & too interested in stats!”

The new England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman Colin Graves has given Pietersen hope of making a comeback to the England team and former England skipper Michael Vaughan has challenged the batsman to prove himself and don the English cap again by choosing to quit playing in the Indian Premier League and play county cricket instead.
