England Batsman Kevin Pietersen got discharged by the English Cricket Board and former Australian skipper Steve Waugh thinks that someday it would happened. Steve believes that Pietersen had made enough opportunities to try him before he got fired.

 “I think that Pietersen had got enough impinge. Three blows and you’re away. When the finest player on the globe you can get rid of despite doing something he did buy he did not belong to world Top 10 batsmen anymore, and he wasn’t really buying into the squad, culture or ethic-wise… and he dropped down the chances.” Said Waugh.

But another English batsman, Jonathan Trott has gathered Waugh’s consolation. Trott got retired in the midriff of the Ashes series in Australia last year. Waugh felt sympathized with him; he sounded out every player moves through a period when everything around him does not descend into places.

“All of a sudden you get jammed in a hotel room by yourself, watching a TV show you don’t really bask and ordering room service you don’t want really and demons get the wheels turning on your head.”

“I think every sportsperson has gone through it and when that builds up to a certain spot, you’re like ‘I’ve scarcely started to go out of here’.” He added. He also passed through the same stage, he acknowledged.

He could recall that it took him to 13 Test matches to get affected in a winning side, three and a half years to reach his first century, and he had felt a mass of self-doubt and that time he was away from domicile.

“I recall at times being in hotels where you had to wait three hours to make a phone call home and then you’re on for 10 seconds and the phone line drops away. You’re feeling very homesick and things aren’t moving well. But that was all part of being a professional cricketer,” Waugh said.

Waugh is in Kuala Lumpur to attend the Laureus World Sports Awards on Wednesday as one of the brand ambassadors.
