Orphans Pieterson’s guests

2010-10-16 00:00

WITH his brief stay in KZN coming to an end tomorrow, Kevin Pietersen has ensured that he will have made an impact both on and off the field in his two-week stint.

Despite not spending as much time at the crease as he would have liked to get in shape for the England team, the Maritzburg-born star has been praised for his all-round contribution by everyone in the Dolphins set-up.

Yesterday, it was revealed that the 30-year-old Pietersen will host a group of Aids orphans at Kingsmead for today’s play, and the England star will also provide the children with lunch.

Despite the grim weather hovering over the province, the unexpected gesture will certainly make several youngsters’ weekend a lot brighter.
