Kolkata, Oct 29(ANI): England’s stand-in Twenty20 captain Graeme Swann insists that his relationship with star batsman Kevin Pietersen is unaffected by the controversy created by his autobiography, ‘The Breaks Are Off, My Autobiography’.
In the book, Swann has criticized Pietersen’s captaincy stint, saying that he was a bad choice to lead England in 2008 and 2009.My relationship with Kev is unchanged, it’s fine. It’s a story that people were trying to make that wasn’t there,” the Independent quoted Swann, as saying.
“I have read about dressing-room disharmony and discord. Unfortunately, guys who are thinking that probably haven’t got their finger on the pulse. It wasn’t a distraction for us, it was a distraction for guys on the periphery, on the outside of the team,” he added. (ANI)
