Johannesburg: Jan 12, 2014

 

England captain Alastair Cook has reportedly declined to comment on the future of England’s fourth highest Test scorer of all time, Kevin Pietersen, despite the mercurial batsman ruling out retirement and expressing his wish to play in the 2015 Ashes.

 

Smarting from a 5-0 Ashes whitewash, England’s misery in Australia was not confined to the field and coach Andy Flower had to issue a statement denying media speculation of a rift in the dressing room.

 

According to Sport24, the British media claimed that Flower has threatened to quit if Pietersen continued to be part of the team’s rebuilding process, although Cook was non-committal about the future of the leading run-scorer of the recent Ashes series, and just said that he is focusing on the one-day series at the moment.

 

Stating that a lot of important decisions on how they will go forward with the Test, ODI team, his future, will have to be taken, Cook also said that he is not allowed to mention anything on the state of the dressing room under a confidentiality agreement.
