TAKE a bow Paul Downton. The new big cheese of English cricket has certainly made a big impression on the game since taking over.

First Andy Flower goes, now Kevin Pietersen has seen his career finished.

It’s a brave move. But at the same time a right one.

Pietersen is capable of brilliance but too often his career has been mired in controversy, much of it of his own making.

He should have gone when Peter Moores was forced out and he could have gone after texting the South Africans about Andrew Strauss.

Whatever happens, the game will continue. It is bigger than any one man, especially one like KP.
