Described by the media as 'the David Beckham of cricket', Kevin has become the poster boy for English cricket. But he is also in possession of a prodigious talent - fearless, bold and with unflappable nerves. His unique batting style has produced hundreds of runs and many outstanding innings, culminating in his extraordinary triumph at the 2005 Ashes. Yet with the highs, come the lows, and he gives his version of events during the 2006/07 Ashes when England were defeated by Australia. Crossing the Boundary recounts Kevin's remarkable journey so far - from growing up in his native South Africa and the opposition he faced from the national cricket board; his move to England and burgeoning career at Hampshire to winning a place on the England team. It provides a rare insight into the mind of an international cricketer, on and off the pitch. Reflecting his youthful charisma and his bullish confidence, this is a sporting memoir like no other. Full of personal anecdotes and insight from numerous sporting legends such as Shane Warne, Ian Botham, and Nasser Hussain, this is the riveting story of one of the most significant cricketers of our time.

In 2014, Kevin Pietersen's autobiography was one of the most talked about sporting media stories of the year, largely due to the shockwaves it sent through the cricketing establishment. Now, Kevin turns his focus to events on the pitch, offering his views on what it takes to be a successful cricketer in the modern age. This summer's Ashes series has demonstrated just how demanding and unpredictable the game has become, and Kevin is ideally - perhaps uniquely - placed to comment on those developments. In KEVIN PIETERSEN ON CRICKET we'll see exactly how today's player approaches batting, bowling, bowling, captaincy, preparation, and many other aspects of the game itself, through the prism of the author's own experience. We'll see what it's like to face a bowler like Mitchell Johnson at his menacing best, learn how cricketers cope with the challenges presented by foreign climates and conditions, and gain a fresh understanding of how players manage the psychological side of the game.

Born in South Africa in 1980 to an Afrikaner father and English mother, he made his first-class debut at the age of 17. In 1999, while playing with KwaZula Natal, he impressed former England captain Nasser Hussain and the following year signed for Nottinghamshire. He had a stunning debut season. "If he can mainatin his first season's form, the name of Pietersen should be pencilled in for future Test squads," was the glowing report in the Wisden Crickets' Almanack. He moved to Shane Warne's Hampshire in 2004 and went on to make his international debut in the controversial tour of Zimbabwe the same year. He soon became a cornerstone of the England side and played a key role in the thrilling victory in the 2005 Ashes, where he finished the series as the highest scoring player. In August 2008, he was appointed captain and led his adopted country to a victory in the Test against South Africa, and four wins in one day internationals. But his captaincy lasted only five short months and, after continual run-ins with the team's coach Peter Moores, he quit in early January 2009. Cocky, outspoken, and undoubtedly talented, Kevin Pietersen looks sure to be a giant of the sport for many years to come.

Kevin Pietersen is a renowned cricketing renegade and one of the greatest - and most controversial - cricketers of his generation.Born in South Africa in 1980 to an Afrikaner father and English mother, he made his first-class cricket debut at the age of 17. In 1999, while playing with KwaZulu Natal, he impressed former England captain Nasser Hussain and the following year signed for Nottinghamshire where he had a stunning debut season.He moved to Shane Warne's Hampshire in 2004 and went on to make his international debut the same year, soon becoming a cornerstone of the England side, and playing a key role in the thrilling victory in the 2005 Ashes. His England career looked in jeopardy however after his short, and extremely controversial, stint as England captain in 2008 ended in his sacking. But Pietersen, never one to be kept down for long, cemented his comeback with a series of wonderful performances that led to be being named the Player of the Tournament in England's 2010 World Twenty20 win.Having left Surrey, Pietersen's career had another strange twist in the summer of 2012 when, amid a dismal home series against South Africa, he first retired from one-day internationals and was then dropped from the side for allegedly texting the opposition derogatory comments about his own team-mates.Finally back in the England fold, and fresh off a match-winning 186 in India, Pietersen looks in control once again. But, with him, controversy is never more than a switch-hit away.
