England’s former batsman Marcus Trescothick, at the same time as talking on ‘The Shackles Are Off’ podcast, found out that he headbutted batsman Kevin Pietersen throughout a party in Lahore and idea he had damaged his nose.
The occasion happened in 2005 after a loss towards Pakistan inside the 2nd Test in Lahore left the entire England aspect disillusioned with their earlier performance.
Marcus Trescothick Said about Pietersen:
“There was one night in Lahore of all places. After the 2005 (Ashes) series so the end of 2005. We lost the second Test match and the series was over.
Vodaphone had organised a karaoke night for us in the hotel. It was just for the players and the staff but everyone was so annoyed and disappointed that only about eight of us turned up,” Trescothik said.
“We had this massive room and a karaoke machine. You know how hard it is to get a drink in Pakistan it’s nigh on impossible. We had all this beer tequila and stuff that had rocked up from the high commission.”
The 44-year-old found out that it becomes the most wonderful karaoke nights he had ever heard of.
“There were about eight of us there just messing around and it turned into one of the most entertaining karaoke nights I have ever heard.
I think it was me KP, Paul Nixon & Hoggard was there and Jim the guy from Vodaphone,” he said.
“I can’t remember because were absolute smashed to bits I remember headbutting KP and I thought I’d broken his nose.
He had pinned me down on the floor and I just went ‘bang’ like that and nutted him one on the bridge of his nose.
We were mucking about – too much tequila does that to you doesn’t it.”
The commencing batsman said that the gamers involved had a fantastic time and ended
the night by using singing to an empty room.
“In the middle of Lahore in this hotel where no one else knows and behind
closed doors–it was the best karaoke singing you’ve ever heard.
At the end of it all of us all eight of us or whatever it was got on stage and
just sang to the empty room” he concluded.
