When I was England captain, it was the worst year of my life: Kevin Pietersen

Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen Wednesday revealed that he was able to save his marriage and relationship with his kids improved after he got axed from the team post the 2014 Ashes in Down Under and was no longer considered for international selection after that.

"England did me a favour in sacking me in 2014 because it has helped me with my relationship with my kids no end. I didn't want to be a lousy dad. For the birth of my son Dylan in 2010 I had to fly back from playing in the Caribbean, see him being born then get a helicopter to Gatwick the next day to play in a semi-final for England. I was absent," Pietersen said.

The 37-year-old also credited his wife, former Liberty X singer Jessica Taylor, for the way she managed the family and supported him all throughout his cricketing career.
