KP in line for Eng­land come­back

CRICKET

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY OCTOBER 4 -

KEVIN PI­ETERSEN will to­day be wel­comed back into the Eng­land fold.

A press con­fer­ence is expected to re­veal that the South Africaborn bats­man will agree a cen­tral con­tract.

Pi­etersen missed Eng­land’s de­fence of their World Twenty20 crown be­cause of his con­tract wran­gles and the break­down of his work­ing re­la­tion­ship with coach Andy Flower and for­mer Test cap­tain An­drew Strauss.

But peace may have bro­ken out – and Pi­etersen as­sured one fol­lower on Twit­ter yes­ter­day that he will be “back soon”.

He should re­turn to the fold for at least some part of Eng­land’s win­ter tour in In­dia and then New Zealand.

Flower said: “The sit­u­a­tion is on­go­ing. I think it’s near­ing an end now – in a pos­i­tive way, I hope.”
