England Cricket News: Kevin Pietersen to miss Auckland Test, IPL with knee injury | ESPN Cricinfo

Kevin Pietersen will miss out on the IPL due to the knee injury. A big, very big blow for Delhi Daredevils.
But on the brighter side, we have the likes of Jesse Ryder, Johan Botha and Jeevan Mendis added in the team this year who can compensate for the loss of KP. I have great hopes from Botha tbh.

This is what TA Sekar, Delhi Daredevils' team mentor said:

"We have received a mail from the England and Wales Cricket Board informing us about KP?s knee injury and the decision to withdraw him from all cricket, including the IPL. It is unfortunate to lose a player of KP?s class and it is indeed a big blow. But we believe we have the combination of players to be competitive.

We have the explosive Jesse Ryder, the exciting Andre Russell, the crafty Johan Botha and the big-hitting Jeevan Mendis to draw from"

I read that , that's a bummer . I think they'll play Jesse along side Virender for the opening 1 down maybe Mahela 2 should be Chand :) .

Warner, Sehwag, Ryder, Chand/Mahela, Mahela/Chand looks good to me.
But all that only if Ryder plays. I personally wish to see Botha play most games.

So the 4 overseas players I prefer at the moment are Warner, Mahela, Botha and Morne Morkel. Taking nothing away from Ryder though. He is one of the most dangerous batsmen in the world in the T20 format.

Excuse Me!? Kevin Pietersen added 305 runs with a whooping average of 61 runs per match . In season 5 there was David Warner who was firing a bit alongside Virender & also some times Mahela .

In the previous season, Sehwag guided Delhi to the playoffs. He was mighty consistent and in superb form, that world record of 5 consecutive 50s in T20s was epic. And he was very well supported by KP. I guess KP was the only batsman who gave genuine support to Viru.

KP will be undoubtedly missed. It's a huge blow for us. I'm just hoping that Ryder and Botha come good for us.

I just heard that Dinesh Chandimal is replacing KP. Does anybody know if they had any other choice or just had to go with Chandimal?

Don't think there was anyone else . But not a good one , although he has lots of talent he's not cut out for t20 cricket . :)

That's what I thought but I just found out that he is now the captain of Sri Lanka's T20 team.
