Judging by the look on Kevin Pietersen’s face, he’s either about to face a 90mph ball or something’s really bothering him. “It’s a gun battle out there,” he says, his words punched through his teeth. “It’s shocking, shocking, shocking. There’s so much greed and corruption. It’s blood money.”
England cricket’s swashbuckling former run machine has always spoken his mind, but on this occasion he’s not talking about the sport that made him famous. Instead, he’s describing the crisis facing the rhino, which, according to the World Wildlife Fund, is critically endangered.
Pietersen, who was born in South Africa and whose clipped tones now accompany cricket television coverage around the world, was so troubled by the decline in the species that in 2018 he set up SORAI, Save Our Rhinos Africa & India.
A year later, he partnered with Hublot – for whom he’s an ambassador – to create a limited-edition watch to raise funds for the non-profit conservation organisations SORAI supports. Today, the pair have come together again to announce a second watch, the Hublot Big Bang Unico SORAI.
