Pietersen not worried about form

English batsman Kevin Pietersen is not worried about his recent ODI form, saying he is most happy when England is winning.

Although England have taken a 2-1 lead in their seven match ODI series against India, they have done it without the help of their premier batsman who has managed just 67 runs in three outings with a high score on 33 not out.

“I’ve always said no matter how many runs I score if England are winning that’s when I’m happiest. Right now I’m happy. The hundreds I’ve scored are in losing causes, they’re good for stats. But everyone wants to be in a winning dressing room,” Pietersen told the media ahead of the fourth ODI at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Pietersen also spoke of his excitement at the possibility of winning the one-day series against India.

“In the nearly three years I’ve played for England, there have not been many mornings when you wake up thinking ‘we could win a one-day series’ and a big series at that. But I woke up on Tuesday thinking we could now be 3-0 up. In three games, we have scored around 900 runs and I haven’t played in an England team before that could say that,” Pietersen said.
