London: Soon after hearing that the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had sacked batting coach and veteran cricketer Graham Gooch, Kevin Pietersen took to his Twitter account to deliver a parting shot at Gooch.

He asked: "Where do I apply for ENG batting coach job? I promise I won't encourage whistling when you get out or trying to change the game!" And if that wasn’t enough to cause the English Cricket Board dread, then news has emerged of Pietersen reportingly attempting to ‘hijack’ England’s first Test of the summer at Lord’s against Sri Lanka next month.
A report in the British press is saying Pietersen and his‘super publicist’ Piers Morgan are expected to attend the opening day of the Test, with some even saying he could be a guest in a hospitality box hired by a ECB member.
