New Delhi: Kevin Pietersen, the England and Delhi Daredevils batsman, believes that the IPL is not the menace it is made out to be in the west, especially in his adopted country of England, and that it is not a threat to Test cricket. Speaking to CNN-IBN~s sports editor, Gaurav Kalra, Pietersen also said that the IPL should have a stronger English presence.

"It saddens me when I read negative publicity of the IPL in England. I think there should be a window for the IPL to take place because it~s a magnificent tournament," said Pietersen in an interview. "There~s lot of money issues [and] that I think is what dampens it in England. People think that it~s just a money-making racket for individuals but so what? That~s just the way it is. Sportsmen get paid. What are you going to do about it?"
