England Still Suffering 'Ashes Hangover', Says Kevin Pietersen
Kevin Pietersen has said an "underlying current of unhappiness" within the England side that developed during the Ashes thrashing in Australia, was still at work, had played its part in the team's first home Test series defeat by Sri Lanka.
England went down to a 100-run defeat by Sri Lanka in the second Test at Headingley on Tuesday to lose the series 1-0 after the tourists clung on for a draw at Lord's.
Kevin Pietersen, suggested there was more to England's woes than on-field performance, citing the way in which last man James Anderson broke down in tears after being dismissed off the penultimate ball at Headingley as an example.
Pietersen, added that England were in winning positions in both matches but blew it, and that he believes that that is a symptom of the senior players being very unsettled.
