Twitter went berserk on Thursday after former England batsmen Kevin Pietersen and Matt Prior finally buried their hatchet. It came six years after their feud began. Kevin Pietersen is one of the best batsmen England have produced but his career was filled with its fair share of controversies. He had poor relationships with some of his teammates and one of them was gloveman Matt Prior.

Kevin Pietersen had accused Prior of bullying and becoming too big for his boots. Pietersen had written in his autobiography, “It was a sad time … I had been friends with Cheese (Prior). Now he was slowly losing any sense of himself as he turned up the volume and made himself the main man of the dressing room.”

Kevin Pietersen also went to the extent of saying that Matt Prior was a “massive negative influence” on the team and accused him (along with bowlers Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann) of forming a clique that intimidated young teammates.
