Pietersen may not be the only one at fault

Although Kevin Pietersen did himself no favours by letting the world know about his discomfort in the England dressing room, Paul Newman, in his column in the Daily Mail, wonders whether it was forced on him because he wasn't accepted the way he was in the group.

Pietersen, it was made clear on Wednesday, faces a long battle to ever be welcomed back into the fold but questions need to be asked as to whether a dressing room in which team spirit and unity are so important has played any part in forcing such a gifted, if flawed, individual into the wilderness.

It takes all sorts and some people are more sensitive than others.
