Pietersen, looking to find form ahead of England's Ashes series against Australia starting on November 25, was caught by Andrew Birch off the bowling of Jon-Jon Smuts for 36. Pietersen faced 48 balls and hit six fours.

Pietersen, 30, who was born and bred in KwaZulu-Natal and attended Maritzburg College before electing to further his career in England, will play two SuperSport Series matches for the Dolphins this season.

    It is not a great score but not necessarily cheaply either.

    Not exactly a failure ... but neither would one call it a success. Very much a sensationalist headline! Idiot journalist

    Mr. Journo, you can stop now, we don't hate him anymore.

    i think the failure they speak of spending time out in the middle to get the confidence back up and not solely focusing on the score ...

    @Abi and Simon says.Batting at number 4 and only scoring 36 is a failure, all the hard work has been done by the openers to take the shine off the ball.pietersen thinks that he was playing in a 20/20 game.Hope this isn't the knowledge he wanted to give to the youngsters

    36 from 48 isnt great but a fair score. After all he plays for England now and then and we expect more from any memeber of that team. Its stange though that this is the only site that says that he fell "cheaply" The other sites even with links on this page are calling Entertaining and a very good knock. Make your minds up.
