James Anderson has admitted that a return to the England set-up for Kevin Pietersen now appears to be impossible following the fallout from his recently-released autobiography.
Pietersen targeted a number of his former colleagues in the book, and suggested that Anderson was part of a group of players who created a bullying culture in the dressing room.
However, the 32-year-old bowler has dismissed those claims, and believes that any slim chance of Pietersen playing for England again now appears to be gone.
"The dressing room was a really nice place to be," Anderson revealed on The Claire Balding Show. "When you're in a winning successful dressing room, everyone enjoys being there.
"It is sad that all the stuff that has come out has been about what was a really successful period of cricket which I loved every minute of. It's a shame that this overshadows it.
"I can't really see a way back now for KP after what's been said, but he was such an amazing player, one of the best batsmen we've ever had."
