Kevin Pietersen played a cautious out-of-character innings and lived a charmed life as English wickets clattered around him on day one of the dead-rubber fourth Ashes Test against Australia.
Pietersen, under fire for his unproductive batting in England's troubled series, curbed his natural attacking instincts to keep the pressing Australians at bay before a crowd of 91,092, the highest single-day attendance for any Test match.
Pietersen went to stumps unbeaten on a fighting 67 off 152 balls, with Tim Bresnan not out one in England's 226 for 6. In doing so Pietersen passed Geoff Boycott as the fourth all-time England run-getter.
