Kevin Pietersen is making foes by the dozen and England spinner Graeme Swann is the latest to slam his former teammate. Dismissing Pietersen's autobiography -- KP: An Autobiography -- as a 'work of fiction,' Swann minced no words in criticizing the 'disclosures' made by the batsman.

On Monday, Pietersen had revealed that there was a fear factor which reigned supreme in the English dressing room under former coach Andy Flower. He had gone on to describe wicketkeeper Matt Prior as a 'bad influence who picked on players." Swann though rubbished the strong attempts at character assassination.

"I immediately realised it was codswallop when I read the character assassination of Matt Prior. Tragically I don't think Kev realises the one person who fought tooth and nail to keep him in the side is the one person he is now assassinating: Matt Prior."
