Pietermaritzburg: England batsman Kevin Pietersen dismissed a newspaper report quoting him as saying he was "on the way down" as a cricketer, saying his words had been taken out of context.

"I was only talking about my age, nothing else," Pietersen, 30, told Reuters on Friday before playing a game for the KwaZulu-Natal Dolphins.

Pietersen, who has not scored a Test century since March 2009, had been quoted as saying on the website of Britain`s Daily Mirror (www.mirror.co.uk): "I have probably got to the top of the fence and am on the way down."

Pietersen is in South Africa to play two first-class matches for the Durban-based Dolphins in an effort to regain his form before England`s five-Test Ashes series against Australia starting in Brisbane on Nov. 25.
