London: England batsman Kevin Pietersen has said that he would not change his risk-taking batting style, despite a run of failures resulting in Geoffrey Boycott branding him a ‘mug’. England’s leading batsman by Test average and reputation, Pietersen has struggled badly on this disastrous tour so far, scoring only 165 runs in his six innings and on five occasions, he has been caught on the leg side playing attacking shots.
