Kevin Pietersen struck down by the Reverse Sweep Ashes hoodoo

The curse of  Reverse Sweep’s Ashes astrological predictions has struck again: having seen off Michael Vaughan and Brett Lee, in association with cricket’s finest clairvoyant, Mystic Mags, we correctly foresaw that Andrew Flintfoff would have injury problems at Lord’s and give the pedalos another workout http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2539980/Fred-on-a-ped-II.html.

We also crystal-balled that Jimmy “in the form of his life” Anderson would come good in St John’s Wood (to coin a snappy phrase) althought admittedly he didn’t return the expected ten-fer, and suggested that KP would be “at his most crotchety throughout 2009, blunting his creativity.  Those looking for new strokes to add to his personal batting lexicon of ‘flamingo’ and ‘switch shot’ will be disappointed”.

Well, now we know why he was crotchety: because his achilles was giving him gip. And he certainly won’t be adding to his personal batting lexicon because he won’t be doing anything creative with a bat for quite some time.

* Reverse Sweep is now available for personal astrological guidance, but reminds potential clients that it might all be a complete load of boll*cks.
