In an utterly disappointing tour, which saw the Poms thrashed 5-0 in the One Day series, the team managed to beat the Indians by six wickets in the One-off T20, courtesy of a commendable half-century by KP. The player stroked 53 off just 39 balls to easily
chase their opponent’s target of 121.
 Despite their first on-field success, the tour was marked with a high-profile controversy which involved two renowned tourists’ players, Swann and Pietersen himself. The spinner in his new auto-biography, The Breaks Are Off, commented that his teammate
was never the right man to lead his side.

of the two players.

With the visitors registering their first win, Pietersen took time and commented on the issue with a very firm stance, however said that it did not affect his relationship with Swann.
"I still do not agree to anyone writing a book in the middle of his career," Pietersen commented.

"That (controversy) was something around for a day or two. But that had nothing to do with our relationship.”
