England ready for Australia swing – Pietersen

Batsman Kevin Pietersen says England will be better prepared for Australia’s swing bowling in the fourth Ashes Test after their 267-run defeat in Perth.

Australia levelled the series after bowling England out for 187 and 123, Mitchell Johnson taking nine wickets.

“We’ve had great success against swing bowlers in the past,” said Pietersen.

“The ball swings in England throughout the summer so swing bowling’s not a problem. I just don’t think we prepared ourselves for it,” he told BBC 5 live.
