London: His anger at the English cricket administration and the then coach Andy Flower notwithstanding, Kevin Pietersen says he hasn't been too wise himself even though he is far from being the "villain" that he was made out to be before being sacked.
In his no holds barred autobiography, which is due to be out on Thursday, Pietersen recalled his sacking from the team but also hoped for a comeback.
"I didn't always tread wisely. I was often naive and sometimes stupid. I was no villain, though," he writes. (Kevin Pietersen's book a work of fiction: Swann)
