Trott calls on ECB to end KP tension
England's Jonathan Trott is hopeful that the ECB will make a speedy decision on the latest controversy surrounding Kevin Pietersen.
'KP' was recently excluded from the squad for the final Test against South Africa after allegedly sending a number of the Proteas bowlers texts criticising his captain Andrew Strauss and advising them on the best way to bowl him out.
The controversy has also led to the 32-year-old being left out of the squad for the upcoming Twenty20 World and it's still unclear whether he'll be allowed to represent his country again.
Trott has now called on both sides to settle their differences, as he believes England will only struggle without the powerful batsman.
"Kev has got his reasons and the ECB have got their own reasons so they need to sort out whatever the middle ground is, draw a line and try to come to a conclusion on whether Kevin plays for England again," he told Sky Sports.
"It is up to him what he wants to do and it is up to the ECB how they want to handle it.
"I can only speak for the guys in the changing room and myself, and I think everybody wants this sorted out so it is crystal clear where we all stand," he added.
