Stuart Broad believes it would have been better for Kevin Pietersen to be dropped from the England side rather than have the batsman’s international career ended.
The 34-year-old was sacked after England’s 5-0 Ashes loss to Australia in 2013 I just think the sacking became a media uproar,” Broad told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“It just seemed a bit unnecessary when every other player gets dropped for poor form, don’t they?”
“It could have been handled very differently by everyone,” Broad, 28, added.
“If I’d have been there I might have said: ‘Look, that was such a disastrous Australia tour – all the players didn’t perform to an international standard. You have to go and perform in county cricket at the start of the year to get back in the England team in May’.
“Then pick the team on players who went and performed and did their duties for their counties.”
Pietersen has been in fine form for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League, which lead to calls for his reintroduction into the England squad for the 2015 World Cup.
The South African-born batsman was not selected in England’s 15-man squad.
