Former England captain opened up on the controversy between him and Kevin Pietersen and feels that he could have managed it better. In a podcast with Sky sports, Strauss said that he feels like he didn't do enough work with KP. There came a time where some of the people Pietersen was close to in the team, either retired or got dropped, there was an opportunity to not bring him in, but spend time with him and make sure his views were considered. Strauss added that if him and the management had time to think it out clearly, they could have managed it better. Tensions between Strauss and Pietersen had left a dent on England cricket during the 2012-13 season which saw the latter being permanently sacked from the national side.
