While I may have an abusive relationship with Mitch, KP’s relationship with him is much different.
You only had to look into KP’s eyes while he denounced any possibility of having a relationship with Mitch to know it was something quite special.
Last week it was Mitch saying that KP was a smart ass and that KP hadn’t seriously asked for his number.
On the surface this could be just ashes byplay that means less than nothing other that keeping newspapers printing.
Ofcourse, that’s what they want you to think.
In truth this all started long ago when KP was playing in Brisbane and he saw Mitchell in his short plumbing shorts.
No it didn’t.
If you expect some sort of cricket slash story involving Mitch unclogging KP’s pipe this isn’t the place.
KP and Mitch have no relationship.
It wasn’t until last week that KP even knew Mitch existed. Before getting bowled he thought Mitch was a net bowler who kept accidently walking out on the pitch.
And Mitch still can’t tell KP from Trott. Cooley sent him out with a note that said, “KP is the one with the camp Saffa accent”, but Mitch couldn’t tell which one of them sounded like a camper.
Both men could be in the same elevator without any sexual tension being noticeable to a third party.
Their relationship is not professional or platonic, it simply fails to exist. Like Mitch’s inswinger a fortnight ago.
When Mitch was dropped (rested) and KP was (rested) dropped, they didn’t console each other. There were no soothing text messages or kind digital words of any kind.
Mitch just continued his gormless existence and KP went about his life in KP land.
Although, if they did have a sexual relationship…. No, can’t even try and go there, imagining that is worse than watching a Mitch short ball down the legside or KP sweeping Hauritz off his head. Although if you combine the two naked and that is exactly how they would go about it.
