Kevin Pietersen fined for speeding in Lamborghini loaned by Warne

KP's Lambo

Lamborghini loaned by Warne

After their trouble-free breeze around Australia, England have encountered their first ‘crisis’. Forget the fact that Australian cricket is in crisis having just suffered their biggest defeat against England in this country for four decades. Kevin Pietersen has acquired a speeding fine.

And it could be argued that Shane Warne has made his first impact on the series. Yesterday Pietersen was given the use of a Lamborghini, the $475,000 Gallardo LP560-4. As an ambassador for Lamborghini Warne had generously made the arrangements for Pietersen.

“This is Warnie’s patch”, said KP discreetly, “and when I’m in town he looks after me. Just the same as Sachin [Tendulkar] does in Mumbai or [Sourav] Ganguly in Kolkota”.

Inevitably the car was bright yellow and almost inevitably Pietersen – once he had established how to open the fuel cap – could not resist. He was stopped for speeding in the outskirts of Melbourne for driving at 121kph and fined $239 and docked three points.
