Former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has announced that the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) should explain why they sacked Kevin Pietersen.

Pietersen was axed from the national team after their embarrassing 5-0 whitewashing at the hands of Australia in the last Ashes series.

“What Kevin’s done can’t be as bad as what’s been portrayed and it’s time the ECB told us, the paying public who are missing out on watching him, what went on,” Flintoff told Sky Sports. “I think Kevin is somebody with immense talent who people are quick to praise when heĀ is good, and jump on straightaway when he has a bad game or something doesn’t go his way.

“He was challenging at times because sometimes he wants to do things his way but as long as it is working out in the middle, that’s fine.

“He was the hardest trainer so Kevin was never a problem for me and as a player I’d have him every day of the week.”
