Flower confirms KP return



First published in International

Kevin Pietersen's reintegration into the England side is set to be completed after team director Andy Flower confirmed the controversial batsman will play in the tourists' first warm-up match against India A tomorrow.

''He is down to play and will be batting at four,'' Flower said.
