England wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow has announced that he is gutted he will no longer be able to play with Kevin Pietersen.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) terminated Pietersen’s central contract following the national team’s horrendous tour of Australia. 

“He (Pietersen) is a fantastic player,” Bairstow told BBC Radio. “He is one of the best there has ever been.

“It was a great pleasure to play with him. He could change a game on his own, so it’s disappointing that I won’t get to play with him again.

“However, that is the decision the ECB has made and we move forward and I’m sure the team will go from strength to strength.”
