British Prime Minister David Cameron has become embroiled in the ongoing controversy about the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) axing flamboyant batsman Kevin Pietersen.

Cameron, who admitted that he was “an enormous fan” of Pietersen’s, hinted that the board may have made a mistake by axing the 33-year-old.

“I am an enormous fan of Kevin Pietersen and I have had some of my most enjoyable times watching him tonking the ball all over the park,” Cameron said on BBC Radio Lancashire. “His average (47.28 in Tests) is remarkable. It is not often I have sympathy for Piers Morgan but I thought he was making quite a powerful argument this morning on my radio.

“But I will let the England selectors pick the England team, I think I had better stay out of this one.”
