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.
