Kevin Pietersen is widely regarded as a pioneer when it comes to limited-overs cricket.

He became one of the IPL’s most popular overseas players while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are among the favourites to win this year's title in the latest IPL betting. He then moved on to Delhi Daredevils and Rising Pune Supergiant before retiring in 2018, and has spent the last few seasons commentating on the competition as it has gone from strength to strength.

Covering the 2020 tournament in the UAE has been a little different to normal, though.
