Pi­etersen close to hang­ing up his bat

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RESULTS / ROUND-UP -

KEVIN Pi­etersen ap­pears to have called time on his play­ing ca­reer af­ter de­cid­ing not to travel with the Quetta Gla­di­a­tors to La­hore for their Pak­istan Su­per League play-off.

The for­mer Eng­land bats­man, who has been quite pub­licly edg­ing closer to re­tire­ment over re­cent months, helped Quetta qual­ify from the group stages and move closer to a third suc­ces­sive fi­nal ap­pear­ance in the Twenty20 tour­na­ment.

How­ever, af­ter play­ing all of their matches so far in Shar­jah and Dubai, Quetta will now re­turn to Pak­istan to face Peshawar Zalmi at the Gaddafi Sta­dium on Tues­day — and Pi­etersen has opted not to travel .
