I'm not really a cricket fan (follow the Ashes in fits and starts but largely I think cricket is the dullest game in the world...) but I have been watching the Pietersen sage unfolding over the last few days.
I don't really want to get into the weeds of the history or even personalities, but interested in people's perspectives on the team issue. If you were captain/selector, would you pick someone who is supremely talented but not a team player, at the risk of team harmony? Or would you pick the best players and hope they'd somehow GEL as a team? Should Pietersen be offered a lifeline to the England Test team or are they right to sideline him?
