Kevin Pietersen in awe of the current English side

The England cricket team is shaping up pretty nicely for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup and it is being regarded as the number 1 contender for the title this time as they have some fabulous players in their lineup who have done remarkably well in recent years.

Former top-order batsman Kevin Pietersen has been really impressed with the performance of the blue shirts as he feels that the current English side is comparable to the great Australian ODI team of the 2000s which was a force to reckon with.

Comparing the kind of impact players in both teams, Pietersen said that it was almost impossible to defeat the Aussies when they had players like Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting, and Adam Gilchrist which is exactly the case in the English side which has Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, and others who could decimate any opposition.
