KEVIN Pietersen admits he is facing the toughest challenge of his career as he attempts to establish himself as a one-day international opener for England.
Pietersen has contributed 14 and 26, in half-century stands with prolific first-wicket partner and captain Alastair Cook, as England have gone 2-0 up against Pakistan with two to play in the ongoing series. The third match is today.
“In my career so far, this is the toughest I’ve ever found it,” he said.
“Because of this new DRS (decision referral) system, there are definitely technical issues you have to look at in order to save yourself from batters not getting the benefit of the doubt any more.”
