Along with coach Peter Moores,Kevin Pietersen tried to get rid of batting coach Andy Flower as well,according to media reports here.

The Guardian quoted an unnamed ECB official saying that apart from Moores,Flower too figured in Pietersen’s hate list. “Pietersen wanted half of them out and certainly Andy Flower,” the official was quoted as saying.

“I don’t know what he was hoping to achieve but I’ve never encountered an ego quite like it in cricket. He wanted to run the show,” he said.

“I did hear that Kevin wanted Andy out,” another management board member said. The revelation came amid speculations that Flower would take over as the interim coach for England’s tour of the West Indies.

Flower,however,refused to say anything on the issue. “I had heard something about this but not enough to make a comment. I have always had a good relationship with KP but we have not spoken in the past few days.”
