Kevin Pietersen rakes up further controversy with his latest comments about Australian tour…
Recently axed from playing International cricket for England, Kevin Pietersen says that he has no regrets about being put out to pasture, reports ESPN.
Calling England’s last tour of Australia an unpleasant experience, the swashbuckling batsman insists that he has made his peace with being out of international cricket.
Speaking about the experience in the Australia, which finally led to his bizarre exit from the English team, Pietersen said, “I am at peace with everything. It took only a couple of conversations with my family to start thinking this way because of how much I really did not enjoy the winter. In fact, it has been a relief to be out of the dressing room because it was not a pleasant place in Australia. We were losing and in my opinion the environment was poor and I was not alone in thinking that. It is a view shared by a number of the players who have spoken their minds since coming back from the tour.”
Pietersen does not give up hope of playing Test cricket again though, but states that he is not bitter about his being dropped from the English ranks.
The 33-year old washed more dirty linen in public, when he accused former England coach Andy Flower of wanting him out of the team. Hinting that the Zimbabwean’s pressure on the England Cricket Board was what led to Pietersen’s axing, the English batsman also claimed that reports of him having a tiff with a majority of his teammates were a complete fabrication.
