Bresnan plays down Pietersen absence

Tim Bresnan reveals the atmosphere within the England camp is "just like it always is" in the absence of Kevin Pietersen, adding the team seems "to play really well in the face of adversity".

The fast bowler queries whether England should miss Pietersen, asking why they should "miss a certain individual because he's unavailable for selection?"

Pietersen was dropped from the squad ahead of the third Test in the wake of allegations he had sent text messages criticising his team-mates to South African players.
