“I think he’s a very bitter man. I think Kevin Pietersen wanted to get rid of Andy Flower when he was the captain as well, so I think there’s a little bit of personal vindictiveness in there.

“But man-management is part of the skill of being a good leader and a good coach. If Andy Flower had been lacking and hadn’t been able to rein in one of the best England players we’ve had in recent years, it’s a very sad state of affairs.”
