Stuart Broad has insisted that there has never been a bullying culture inside the England camp, despite the claims made by Kevin Pietersen in his autobiography.
However, Broad has claimed that he may have been singled out by his former teammate due to his passion on the field.
"It sounds like Kevin didn't enjoy his time in the England side. which is disappointing to hear," the seamer told BBC Sport.
"You would expect guys to be excited and passionate about playing for their country.
"I look at my heroes growing up, the likes of Martin Johnson. Look at Peter Schmeichel, when he conceded a goal he certainly gave Steve Bruce and Gary Pallister an earful. I don't know if that would be classed as bullying, or just the passion of being disappointed."
Prior and Swann have also dismissed the claims made by Pietersen in his book.
