new Delhi: Before the upcoming series against India, England had announced their team for the first Test. Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has raised many questions about the selection of the team.
Pietersen said it would be disrespectful to the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) and England fans if the England team does not field its best team against India.
Tweeting Pietersen (Kevin Pietersen), he said, ‘It is a big issue of debate whether England have chosen their best team for the first Test against India. Winning in India is as good as winning in Australia. Not feeding their best team is disgraceful for England fans and for the BCCI as well. Should have chosen Bairstow! Choose Broad / Anderson! ‘.
