Kevin gets cautioned inside loo

There is nothing unusual about being cautioned by a match referee but what sets apart maverick England star Kevin Pietersen’s case is that it happened inside the toilet of the airport here!

Pietersen was informally cautioned by match referee Andy Pycroft for showing dissent against an umpire’s decision after he stayed glued to the crease for quite a few seconds following his dismissal, which looked dubious in replays, during the lost third one-dayer against India last Saturday.

 ‘Kevin and I were spoken to in the gents. So that was a very nice scene, my first meeting with a match referee!’ coach Ashley Giles said.

‘We’ve got to be careful with reactions to decisions and Andy was right to speak to Kev. But I think common sense prevailed. It was just a little word. Andy was right to speak to Kev,’ Giles admitted.
