Pietersen’s strike a grievous blow

This may just be Kevin Pietersen‘s match.

Australia suffered a grievous blow to their faint hopes right at the end of the fourth day of the second Ashes Test in Adelaide when Pietersen had Michael Clarke taken at short leg off bat and body.

They had already lost Simon Katich (43), Ricky Ponting (nine) and Shane Watson (57) and still trailed by 137 runs when stumps were drawn.
