Kevin Pietersen, The Oval, Freddie Flintoff & Confidence

I was at The Oval on Friday for South Africa’s drubbing at the hands of England’s cricket team.


As Flintoff’s been saying, Pietersen’s confidence is rubbing off on the team and it certainly looked like it as they thwacked the Saffers all over the park and again yesterday at


At the end of one over, after Patel got one of his five wickets, Kevin ran about 70 yards to shake his bowler’s hand and thank him for his contribution.

I, like many others, was worried that Pietersen’s confidence and imperious nature would have a detrimental effect on the team and that he couldn’t captain anyone else but himself.

So far he’s proved us wrong and has been nothing less than impressive both on the field and when interviewed.

I love the quote from him about being under the South African cosh after the test series:

“Pressure is a privilege!”

Anyway these photos we taken with my HTC TYTNII using the Panorama setting.

I think the lens is screwed up because they add the blue haze but in fact they’ve turned out ok!


The one above is of Freddie fielding right in front of us!
