Clarke backs Pietersen –

 Australia captain Michael Clarke said England, would be a weaker team without Pietersen, who in 104 Tests has scored 8,181 runs, including 23 hundreds, at an impressive average of 47.28.

Clarke, set to lead Australia during their Ashes defence in England in July, said Sunday: “There’s the personal side where I feel for KP because I get on well with him and I’d love to see him back playing cricket for England.

“His form has been outstanding, he’s still a great player and I know he wants to play, so I feel for him on that side.

“The other side (is) we go there soon to play against England. Any team without Kevin Pietersen in it I don’t think is as strong. His statistics speak for themselves.

“He’s been a wonderful player over a long period of time and he’s obviously still in career-best form,” added Clarke, bidding to lead Australia to a first Test series win in England in 14 years.

Note: Being an arch rival Michael Clarke who is going to lead Australia in the coming series and in spite of knowing what devastation Kevin could do with the bat against Aussies  if included in the team, praised and  supported him wholeheartedly. Again an  instance of his generosity. Clarke, you are a great human being. KP’s fan and KP himself will definitely appreciate this.
