“London Is A Disgrace Of A Place”: England Cricket Great Shares Knife Attack Video | Cricket News



Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has expressed his concern after a man was stabbed in a broad daylight attack on a train in London. The incident took place between Shortlands and Beckenham on a train heading to Victoria on Wednesday. The local police launched an appeal for witnesses to come forward after the victim was reported to have “serious injuries”. Taking to social media platform X, Pietersen reshared a video of the same incident, labelling London as “a disgrace of a place”.

“WTAF is this now in London?!?!?! London was once the most amazing city. It’s an absolute disgrace of a place,” Pietersen captioned the post.

Pietersen also pointed out recent instances where people have been robbed in the capital in broad daylight.

Meanwhile, Pietersen is currently in India for his IPL commentary stint.

Pietersen, who announced his retirement from the sport in March 2018, won four Ashes series and hit 8,181 runs in 104 Tests.

Pietersen, who had a brief and ill-fated spell as England captain, will be best remembered for his sublime innings of 158 in the fifth Test against Australia at The Oval in 2005.

That heroic effort ensured England got the draw they needed to finally reclaim the Ashes, with he also produced epic knocks of 227 against Australia in Adelaide in 2010 and a brilliant 186 against India in Mumbai in 2012.

Pietersen, who was born in Pietermaritzburg in South Africa, made his international debut against Zimbabwe in Harare in 2004. While he has emerged into a dominant force as a Test batsmen, Pietersen’s returns of 10 centuries from 137 ODIs is disappointing for a player who has the ability to take apart any bowling attack. Pietersen’s highest score in ODIs, 130, came against Pakistan in 2012.
