Pietersen vented his frustration at Morris for losing the England captaincy in January 2009 as he described the latter as 'one weak prick' in his book published last year.

Pietersen has been out of the national squad since his central contract was cancelled 13 months ago by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) following the team's Ashes washout by Australia. Morris said that the out-of-favour batsman has had a very successful England career and scored more runs than any player who has played international cricket for the country.
