To begin with, the boy was raised in Pietermaritzburg, but has been living in the UK since 2001.

Pietersen began his cricket career in South Africa, where he played from 1990 to 2000 as an off-spin bowler, then later as a batsman. In the winter of 2000, he played for a season with a low class English club, but the following year he switched to the English County Championship and played for Nottinghamshire. In 2005, he moved to Hampshire. After finishing the waiting period of four years, Pietersen was immediately called into the English national team. He played his first one day international against Zimbabwe in November 2004, and his first test match against Australia in July 2005. Since that time, he has mostly been a permanent player in the English national team. He achieved both the number of 1000 and 2000 runs in One Day Internationals with the least number of matches, and appeared at the top of the ranking list of the world’s best batsmen in One Day Internationals. In 2005, Pietersen was nominated as one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Year.

When the former captain of the national team Michael Vaughan gave-up the position, Pietersen was appointed the new captain. He lost this position, but not his place in the team, after only a few months due to a conflict with the coach of the English team, who was also released. In the middle of 2012, he no longer declared himself available for International Limited Over Games. On the basis of the nomination criteria of the English national team, his withdrawal from One Day International meant the end for the participation in the ICC World Twenty/20 Championship in 2012. In October 2012, after a dispute and his long term resignation from the national team, an agreement was reached between him and the ECB, where upon Pietersen was again taken into the national team and nominated for test selection to India, and played a big part in the following test series victory. In 2015, Andrew Strauss announced that Pietersen was again nominated for the Ashes series against Australia in the summer of 2015, but a medical examination found an Achilles tendon injury, which made it impossible for him to play. In 2016, he represented the team of Rising Pune in Super League, and afterwards he announced his retirement, having played 104 test matches, and 138 ODIs.

Finally, in the personal life of the former cricketer, he married Jessica Taylor, a member of the now defunct pop vocal group Liberty X, in the end of 2007. They have one child.

#Quote
1I married a pretty famous girl, and when we drive through town there's usually a car following us, when I walk out of my front door in Chelsea there's six guys waiting for me.
2When I was single I went out a lot. I don't go out all that often now.
3There's so many differences of opinion in the papers.
4I hate these reality TV shows where people walk off Big Brother and think they're A-list celebrities when they've done nothing in their lives, it really does my head in.
5These days you can play almost 100 Test matches in six years.
6The only way to get a three to four-month break would be to tear a tendon or a hamstring or something like that.
7People do write books.
8The England team is a team that never, ever stops.
9No one in their right mind would turn down the contracts I've been offered.
10Once you have the support of the lads around you, you can't ask for any more.
11My England captaincy was not the England captaincy I wanted, that's what will live with me for a long time.
12Leaving South Africa was very difficult.
13It's quite hard when you do fail and you don't achieve what you want to achieve.
14Look, I've heard a lot of people talk about me, they say I'm like Marmite. They like me, or they don't like me.
15It's tough being me.
16It's not fun facing a ball going 97 mph, trust me.
17India buzzes for its players and that makes you feel special.
18I've had to calm down, I have a kid! It is amazing. It's the best thing ever. Nothing better than it.
19I'm very thrilled and excited to have been given the opportunity to captain England.
20In the past I've thrown my wicket away on certain occasions.
21I've realised I can be happy.
22I'm always on my guard now.
23I think I had about a month off when I broke my rib in Australia, which was magnificent.
24I never think of playing for South Africa. It's the furthest thing from my mind.
25I'm as hungry as ever.
26I'm a very proud person.
27I have principles in my professional and personal life as to how things are done.
28I don't feel sorry for myself.
29I have never been racist.
30I have some real big goals with England.
31I get along fine with the press.
32Big players want to play in front of big audiences.
33During my time as England captain I have always been both helpful and direct in my communications with the ECB.
34I can never sit still for five minutes.
35A good four to six weeks is about right for a proper break.
36I am who I am, in terms of shooting from the hip occasionally.
37I love England and I love cricket.
38An achilles, if it doesn't heal right, there could be a danger of not playing again.
39I'm not a robot.
40I'd like to think that every captain around the world has a vision of how they want their teams to play and most of them are allowed to take their teams forward in their own way.
41I need to rein myself in sometimes.
42I change, like every single normal person.
43I am very fortunate having the job that I do and I want to do it for as long as possible.
44I am very driven.
45It's the weight of expectation that's the hardest to deal with, really, from my point of view.
46Everyone is into male grooming.
47I always say that things are meant to be and everything happens for a reason, so I don't have any regrets.
48I used to lie awake at night, willing myself to put in the hard work, the determination, the passion.
49I have no interest in anyone who wants to criticise me, or doesn't like me despite never having met me.
50The hardest thing is that you can't trust people now. You just can't.
51I love living in London but I would like to buy a place in Dubai and spend a few months of the year out there.
