Kevin Pietersen, who has been just ousted from England’s national team, has still deemed likely about his resurgence in the international cricket territory and come forth as the foremost cricketer to scratch 10,000 Test runs, in comformity with an interview got broadcasted on Thursday.
At the same time, the right-handed batsman Pietersen urged that he has felt remorse about the issue of the text scandal with the former British skipper Andrew Strauss and now they are ‘good friends’.
Pietersen got abandoned in February after the miserable tour of England to Australia. He stated in an interview to Indian Express that he had not bailed out his hope of an international resurgence.
He, who scrolled 8,181 runs in 104 Tests since he made his debut against Australia in 2005, is the fourth highest run scorer in the cricketing history of England and excels the current players’ list.
England skipper Alistair Cook has given his support in front of public and termed the declaration taken by the England board ‘a brave call’ following the unconstrained scrapping of Pietersen.
It appears that the hookup of Pietersen with Cook is far from getting refurbished. On the contrary the differences with Strauss have been settled by conveying a derogative message to him, Pietersen has staked out.
“Andrew Strauss is a very good mate. I was just in a bad phase. We were not nurturing a great relationship at that time. It should never have brought out, all that absurdity. That wasn’t an earmarked time at all.” He stated in an interview on a promotional visit to New Delhi.
