England wicketkeeper Matt Prior has revealed that he has moved on from the accusations levelled against him by former batsman Kevin Pietersen.

Prior stated that he hasn’t been thinking about Pietersen or his autobiography since he co-founded a new professional cycling team called ONE Pro Cycling.

“It was obviously a very tough, a very sad period for me, for my family – to have those accusations levelled against you and everything else,” Prior said. “But look, I’ve come through it. Everyone’s moved on; I think people want to move on. All I’ve ever been about is the team and what is best for the team and helps the team win – and the best thing for the England cricket team is to move on, move forward.

“They’ve got a huge winter coming up with the World Cup and the Ashes next summer; it’s no good bringing up old news. From a personal point of view I’ve been hugely busy with the cycling team – I’ve had to put a lot of energy in getting fit myself [after] having had quite a big operation.

“So that’s my sole focus for the moment – looking forward, getting the cycling team up and running and getting fit again.”
