6:50 am on 10 December 2010

The England cricket team's batting star Kevin Pietersen was booked yesterday for speeding in a Lamborghini arranged by his friend Shane Warne during a trip yesterday to the Geelong beach resort Melbourne.

Man of the match for his double century in the second Ashes test in Adelaide, Pietersen was clocked at 121 kilometres an hour in a 100k zone and fined 300 dollars.

After his joyride Pietersen chirped on Twitter "Massive thanks to Lamborghini and Warne for letting me play with this for a few days".
