The County Ground, Taunton on a Tuesday in August. The first day of a County Championship match. Maybe it was the weather that contributed to an above average gate but more likely a familiar name on the visitor’s team sheet. Fresh from the controversy where it was alleged he had sent tactically sensitive texts to the South African dressing room about his England team mates, the day marked the first century by Kevin Pietersen since his exile from the England Squad. His 163 wasn’t enough to earn earn a victory for his new County with the match ending in a draw.
