Kevin Pietersen has warned his side ahead of the Stanford Series. WIth all the talk this month about the current global ecomonic crisis, Pietersen is well aware of the affects it is having. He has warned his side not to celebrate the victory as this is a sign of disrespect.

“I’ve got friends who are struggling, really struggling – people who’ve lost their jobs. There’s no way I want anyone carrying on like a clown, win or lose. I’ll be angry if stuff does happen. The game has come at a really difficult time, and I 100% respect that. There won’t be nonsense happening in and around or after the match.”
– Kevin Pietersen, who confirmed that he will give share of winnings to charity.

Pietersen also reiterated that the Stanford series will be used as preparation for a tough winter tour to India.

“The message is simple and load and clear from my point of view, which is that this trip is preparation for the series in India. The Stanford game will be highly-pressured situation, as highly-pressured as playing India, or Australia. So it’ll be a reality check for the guys on how they deal with pressure”.
