This WT20 has brought together some active and just-retired players to do TV commentary. England's Kevin Pietersen, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Dutch-born Australian pacer Dirk Nannes are all there. However, they are also working on their fitness. On Monday, Nannes, an expert for BBC, turned up at the South Africa nets to keep his bowling rhythm going and helping the Proteas batsmen. KP is in the commentator's box due to his controversial tweets and the subsequent axing.

On Sunday, KP began an interview with Shane Watson, man-of-the-match against South Africa, with a "How are you, Shane". The Aussie all-rounder burst out laughing, asking, "How are you?" Later, KP enquired at which night spot Virat Kohli planned to celebrate his MOM. Virat grinned at his ex-IPL team mate.
