New Delhi: Discarded English cricketer Kevin Pietersen on Monday expressed his helplessness at not being able to help out his country in the ongoing Ashes series against Australia.

KP, currently on a vacation, sent out a series of Tweets that showcased his unhappiness over being ousted from the team.

KP further added that he had no place in the team despite the fact that he was batting brilliantly and the English team had plenty of issues with their top-order.

England made an impressive start in the Ashes where they won the first Test comprehensively by 169 runs. 

However, Michael Clarke & Co expectedly made a strong comeback and annihilated the Poms with a 405-run defeat in the second Test.

England's top-order once again looked vulnerable against the mighty Australian pace attack at Lord's and barring Alastair Cook, none of the batsmen looked in any sort of rhythm.

While England coach Trevor Bayliss has hinted at making a few changes for the next Test, KP himself should be quite surprised if his name is short-listed for the third Test to be played at Edgbaston.

The 35-year-old was sacked from the England squad post their 5-0 loss against Australia last year.
