Where's the anger?

Shame KP didn't get this preferential treatment

Instead there was a witch hunt to get rid of him

I think the point made at the time with KP, certainly by me but also by others who supported it, that it wasnt realistic for England players to be denied the opportunity to play, and this sort of move is perfectly healthy as it isnt meaning in the future players are picking IPL over England.

So, there shouldnt really be an anger, although I know that wasnt really your point.

But I dont need to go into the whole KP thing again. We know he was singled out, but after listening to his commentary a lot recently, I am starting to understand why

24 England players in auction.

Joe has got the rest sanctioned very easily. Workload is there so why play IPL now. This question was asked to KP by media and England fans. Whereas not much fuss when Joe has got rest without any issues.
