In this freewheeling book, Kevin Pietersen talks about cricket in a relaxed, carefree and casual tone. In fact the matter-of-fact narrative reminds the reader of the unique KP style of cricket – audacity punctuated by arrogance mixed with art. Neither a memoir nor a collection of reminiscence, “On Cricket” is a conversational, yet insightful work on what makes one of the most memorable cricketers of our time tick. “KP” is extremely candid about the way in which he goes about mentally preparing himself for a game, how he sets himself (as well as a bowler) up when he is at the batting crease, his techniques and trigger movements and the art of coping with pressure.
Pietersen also selects his dream team in the book and the candidates making up the squad are eleven usual suspects whose identities are not at all hard to predict.
“On Cricket” – A decent showing.
