England cricketer Kevin Pietersen said recently he had yet to find out why he was sacked by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) as officials maintained their wall of quietude after a flood of publicity for his contentious autobiography. Pietersen’s was cut loose by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) following the team’s 5-0 Ashes thrashing in Australia.

The past few days have seen Pietersen rebuke former England coach Andy Flower and inculpate a coterie of senior bowlers, as well as wicketkeeper Matt Prior, of creating a “browbeat” culture in the field. Such has been Pietersen’s rigorous round of interviews, that many potential purchasers may feel they no longer need to read his book. But he persisted the days of allegation and counter-claim could all have been circumvented had he been told why his services were being disbursed with by England.

He was angry with the ECB when he got sacked, Pietersen said as his book went on general sale. He would not be sitting there then if the ECB had said ‘this is why he got sacked’. But we were there, and it is such a controversial topic because nobody knows why. And also he do not know why. He also told that talks with the England and Wales Cricket Board in February could have avoided this week’s quarrel. He also said that would have been the sensible thing to do, absolutely and it could have been done in February if things were managed properly. He would have sat down and have gone through it, because he do not want this.
