KP’S back for India rubber
KEVIN PIETERSEN has been recalled for England’s trip to India but pace ace James Anderson has been rested.
England have five one-day matches against the world champions followed by a Twenty20 clash, with the tour getting underway with the first of two warm-up games on October 8.
The 15-man squad also includes uncapped Surrey fast bowler Stuart Meaker, 22.
Durban-born Meaker made his debut for England Lions against Sri Lanka A this summer.
Warwickshire allrounder Chris Woakes and Durham’s Scott Borthwick have also been called up.
Pietersen strongly denied rumours after the World Cup that he intended to retire from 50-over cricket.
The superstar Surrey batsman was rested for the home India one-day series, the one-off clash with Ireland and the two Twenty20 fixtures last weekend against the West Indies.
