Flower confirms KP return
2:58pm Monday 29th October 2012 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.
Former Hampshire player Pietersen had originally been left out of the 16-man squad to tour India as the fallout of his exclusion from the side earlier in the summer continued.
But following a series of successful meetings, Flower today announced Pietersen will make his first England appearance since making a blistering 149 in the second Test against South Africa at Headingley in August.
''He is down to play and will be batting at four,'' Flower said.
