London: Former England captain Andrew Strauss feels that chief coach Andy Flower "genuinely has to want to bridge the gap" with comeback man Kevin Pietersen or else there will be some challenges for the visitors.

"For it (relation with KP) to work out long term, everyone's genuinely got to want it to work out. Kevin has to want to be part of the team for a long time and the players need to move on from what happened at Headingley and various other things. Even the likes of Andy Flower genuinely has to want to bridge the gap and move forward," Strauss was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

"If that is everyone's attitude, then it can work. If it isn't, then I think there are going to be challenges."
