Kevin Pietersen's wife hits back after Alastair Cook describes axe as "brave"

Kevin Pietersen's wife Jessica Taylor hits back at Alastair Cook after he described England's decision to drop her husband as "brave".

The wife of Kevin Pietersen has expressed her shock at England cricket captain Alastair Cook claiming that it was a "brave call" to axe her husband from the squad.

The England and Wales Cricket Board decided to end the batsman's international career following the Test team's dismal Ashes defeat in Australia in the winter.

The controversy surrounding the decision has been prevalent since the announcement was made, with television host Piers Morgan criticising Cook and Matt Prior for their involvement in Pietersen's departure.

This week, Cook described the move as a "brave call" and that it "took a lot of guts" to make the decision, but Pietersen's wife Jessica Taylor chose to mock the England skipper on Twitter.

Cook also claimed this week that he will reveal the decisions behind Pietersen's omission "soon".
