Former Australian international Marcus North has joked on Twitter that Kevin Pietersen has scored a minor victory following the retirement of Andrew Strauss from all forms of cricket.
But North said Pietersen still has a long way to go to return to the England side after being axed over messages he sent to the South African team.
Strauss has denied any bad blood between him and Pietersen affected his decision to stand down.
Strauss stepping down as captain and/or retiring from International Cricket....That's 1 to KP 10 to go!
