Boycott says Pietersen 'bottles it' when required to play 'innings of patience'

London, Dec 15 : England cricket legend Geoffrey Boycott has said that Kevin Pietersen 'bottles it' when required to play innings of patience and concentration.

According to the BBC, Pietersen faced 59 balls for 19 on the second day of the third Ashes Test before pulling Peter Siddle to mid on.

Boycott said that when it comes to batting with patience and concentration against disciplined bowling, he just could not do it, adding that he bottles it.

England ended the day on 180-4 in Perth, 205 behind Australia, the report said.
