I will give my best shot for the team: KP

“If it’s after the tournament that the baby comes, it’s after the tournament. If it’s during the tournament, I’ll still be giving it my best shot whenever I play for England - no matter where or in what situation,” Pietersen said after guiding the team to a win over Pakistan with an unbeaten 73 last night.

Pietersen could leave the Caribbean in the next 10 days to be with his pop star wife Jessica in London where she is expecting the birth of the couple’s first child.
“It was nice, a nice wicket to bat on, and the boys bowled well. Then we chased down a real gettable total, which was great,” he said after the match.

“To go out there and perform on a day when it was crucial was great. It’s two points for the boys and one more victory and maybe we can go to the semifinals,” he added. “I want to play for England and win games for England. I’ll play for England as long as I can.”
