But, the decision must have surprised the ECB, as the T20 World Cup is just round the corner and his services are surely going to be missed by the English. He had been one of the best players in the IPL, though he could not play the entire tournament. Had he been in the team, he would have been the most important player for them, but they have to look for his replacements, elsewhere. One might take years to find a suitable replacement for him for the long run, as his boots are to big to be filled immediately.
The player would not only be missed by the English fans, but also his fans, which are scattered all over the world. One such fan, Pravin Rukhiyar from India says, “I will miss KP in the upcoming T20 World Cup, especially his huge sixes and classic boundaries. His ability to play under any pitch conditions made him a great player”.
