Stuart Broad Denies Kevin Pietersen's 'Bullying' Accusation
England bowler Stuart Broad has dismissed claims by former team-mate Kevin Pietersen that there was a bullying culture in the changing room during their time as international colleagues.
In Pietersen's recently-published autobiography, he alleges that Broad was a member of a group of senior players who abused less-experienced squad members if they made fielding errors.
But Broad told BBC Sport in an interview, that the 'bullying' word has not crossed his mind in eight or nine years of playing international cricket.
Broad's fellow-bowler James Anderson, another player accused of bullying by Pietersen, said the South Africa-born batsman's claims threatened to overshadow the team's achievements.
