KP on Andy Flower

“It wanted to be Flower’s means and that is the one means. I thought he was a ‘temper hoover’. He was the sort of bloke that got here within the room and instantly the temper would simply go. The way in which he engaged with me from the beginning, he fully misplaced me. He did not suppose I cared.

“He challenged me on so many alternative issues. I simply thought ‘Dude, I do not want you in my life’. Cricket is a workforce sport made up of people. Do not deal with each single individual the identical.

“Why was I disengaged? What had led up for 3, 4, 5 years earlier than that? Do not you suppose {that a} sturdy chief, sturdy coach would have been ready so say ‘what’s been taking place within the dressing room is [expletive]?’ Do you suppose Duncan Fletcher would have allowed that to occur? Fletcher was England’s best coach.

“Australia was garbage [when Flower was England coach]. He had superb gamers. You identify the gamers in our workforce. They have been on hearth. The most effective coaches and man managers are ready to ensure it does not go as pear-shaped because it did [during the 2013-14 Ashes series in Australia].”

KP on England’s dressing-room tradition

“I mentioned to Jimmy Anderson as soon as in a Check match, ‘the one factor I am actually fearful of is passing the ball again to you at mid-off. If it goes under your knee or drops on the ground you simply give me that look, you simply stare at me’. Ought to I have ever been able to say that to one among my bowlers? Guys have been crying within the dressing room due to the abuse they have been taking from the bowlers. Ought to I hate enjoying for my nation that a lot? Some guys did not need to get chosen for England due to what (Stuart) Broad, Anderson, (Matt) Prior and (Graeme) Swann have been like.”

KP on Matt Prior

“He was dropped and essentially the most unfavorable man round that dressing room. He was speaking about ending his profession, how a lot he was hating it and when somebody is totally bombarding negativity round then I’m out. I’ve received no curiosity. He was Flower’s little go-to man, spokesman, who would return and inform Flower all the pieces that was taking place within the dressing room.”

KP on struggling as captain

“I by no means understood failure as a result of I hadn’t failed. I by no means understood households as a result of I did not have a household. I did not perceive being homesick as a result of I’d by no means been homesick. These three issues are so very important to having the ability to cope with each single participant in your workforce. I did not perceive a bloke affected by dangerous type. So how am I going to narrate to a bloke who’s struggling? Was I a great captain? Ought to I have been given the captaincy? Completely not. However I was the one one enjoying all three types of the sport.”

KP on Peter Moores

“He was any individual who got here and saved pecking your head – prepare, do that, that. When you’re within the worldwide atmosphere you might want to take stress away from gamers not put it on. He put stress onto gamers, senior gamers. Clearly ask questions however perceive what has made me profitable and what is going to proceed to make me profitable.”

KP on the IPL

“All the perfect gamers on the earth have been having alternatives to go there for a time frame and fill their wallets. Our careers are solely so brief, so it’s a must to make hay whereas the solar shines. I by no means wished to maneuver on from England. I wished my schedule monitored as a result of I was the one participant within the England set-up enjoying Twenty20s, Check cricket, one-day internationals and had a really profitable contract within the IPL. They do it now. They give the impression of being after each single individual’s schedule. I was enjoying essentially the most variety of days in worldwide cricket aside from MS Dhoni on the time. I mentioned: ‘Simply handle my workload.’ I did not need to transfer on from England. Are you loopy?”

WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT KP?

GRAEME SWANN

“I know Kevin. He does maintain a grudge and when he decides to destroy somebody he goes for the complete cavalry strategy. Batters and bowlers is the most important divide in any dressing room. It is by no means bullying, it is by no means an precise break up within the workforce. That workforce had a superb workforce spirit. If anybody thought me, Matt, Jimmy, Broady have been bullies, they have been within the incorrect sport. They should not be enjoying sport. We weren’t bullies.”

DARREN GOUGH

“Why does Kevin should be greatest mates along with his team-mates? He was the top-scorer [in the 2013-14 Ashes]. You drop the perfect participant as a result of he did not get as many runs as you wished him to get however you retain somebody who it inferior to him as a result of he is a pleasant bloke within the dressing room. That is the weirdest choice coverage I have ever seen.”

Dwell on

MICHAEL VAUGHAN

“I simply felt that it was nearly ‘that is the proper probability in charge Kev as a result of he has been a little bit of a prat’. I was on that [2013-14 Ashes] tour as a broadcaster and the quantity of briefing within the press room from contained in the England camp about Pietersen was pathetic. Simply give attention to enjoying. Play higher. You’ll be able to’t be blaming one individual.”

ANDREW STRAUSS

“[KP’s sacking] was a really arduous one to handle accurately and I do not suppose it was managed accurately. I do not suppose it was deliberate however I do suppose Alastair Prepare dinner bore the brunt of it and that was unfair on him.

“The whole thing’s been very messy. It hasn’t been English cricket’s greatest time. There are a lot of people who are still very raw and wounded about the whole thing, Kevin being one of them. There are other people who perhaps haven’t been so public who also feel very wounded and raw.”

“Kevin Pietersen and English cricket reached the tip of the street collectively. Definitely when I got here in, allowing for that he had been out of the workforce for 18 months, I felt that it was a step again. My job [as director of England men’s cricket] was to take English cricket ahead.

“It got here down essentially to what grew to become a scarcity of belief. KP did not belief lots of people on the ECB, most likely did not belief a few of his team-mates, a few of his team-mates most likely did not belief him. That is not a wealthy atmosphere to play a workforce sport in.”
