England batsman Andrew Strauss had earlier declared that not picking Kevin Pietersen in Ashes 2015 was a correct move. Strauss also said that his exclusion helped England cricket. Now, the 35-year-old Pietersen who was bitter previously has come out and said that Strauss did the right thing by not taking him in the squad. According to Pietersen, England won the series against arch-rivals England and that is more important rather then contemplating over which player was picked or not. Pietersen added that T20 cricket has a bright future since people relish it and it also gets over in less than three and a half hours.

In a conversation with eurosport.com he said, “It [not picking him] seems to be the right decision at the moment and good luck to him. He’s done ok. Some of the stuff he has done with the England team and with getting past players back in the dressing room is brilliant. There is so much knowledge out there which we missed out on in the last three or four years of my career where we could have had that impact. If it is, it is. I’m not sitting here worrying about what has happened. I’m living my life… He had a decision to make and he made his decision and it turned out absolutely fine. England won the Ashes. At the time I thought it was ridiculous, it was nonsense to leave me out. I might have said something stronger to him. I am buzzing that England won and I am not looking back to the meeting in May thinking ‘oh goodness, things could have been so different’. I am pretty cool about it.” VIDEO: Shane Warne’s wonder ball to Andrew Strauss in Ashes 2005
