London, Jan 16(ANI): England star batsman Kevin Pietersen has revealed that his side has made a pact on not to sledge the Pakistan team about the spot-fixing scandal that had sent shockwaves through cricket in 2010.
"There will not be an undercurrent about what happened in 2010. Not with our players - we've spoken about it and it will not happen at all with us. Of course there will still be on-field chat because we play our cricket very hard. There's no way Jimmy Anderson, who is a grumpy bowler, won't be grumpy," The Sun quoted Pieterson, as saying.
His statement comes ahead of the first Test between Pakistan and England since the spot -fixing scandal engulfed cricket in 2010.
Three Pakistani cricketers-Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir have been jailed for spot-fixing, after they admitted to bowling deliberate no-balls in the 2010 Lord's Test.
England skipper Andrew Strauss and head coach Andy Flower have also warned the team to put the scandal behind them.
English pace bowler James Anderson, however, vowed to maintain an aggressive approach during the series, but stressed that he would concentrate on cricket rather than on past controversies.
"I will play my natural game and be as aggressive as I usually am but it would be commonsense to think about what you say. Words aren't generally used on the field anyway . . . certainly not intelligent words. We're just going to concentrate on our cricket - everything else is in the past," Anderson said. (ANI)
