Boots up for KP

Top Story

Former England skipper Kevin Pietersen has confirmed that he has retired from all forms of cricket.

The 37-year-old tweeted out news of his retirement in a typically concise post.

His tweet read simply: “BOOTS UP! Thank you!”

He was slightly more verbose on Instagram on Saturday morning posting: “Thank you for all the quite lovely msgs! I loved entertaining you all! Ciao, cricket! I love this game!”

Boots up! Feet up! Family, animals, golf…! H O M E!

Pietersen played for the Quetta Galdiators in the 2018 edition of the Pakistan Super league, his last in a series of T20 gigs since his England career ended ignominiously in 2014.

He played 104 Tests for England scoring 8181 runs at an average of 47.28 striking 23 centuries.

Pietersen turned out in 137 ODIs and 37 T20Is for England as well.

He played 200 Twenty20s managing three centuries a feat few players have been able to equal or better.
