Kevin Pietersen marked his long-awaited return to domestic cricket with 170 for Surrey against Oxford MCCU.

The 34-year-old was in blistering form on day one of the three-day game at The Parks, demonstrating his full repertoire of shots in scoring his first hundred in any form of the game since the Old Trafford Ashes Test in August 2013.

The former Hampshire player sent the ball to all sides of the picturesque ground in hitting 170 off 149 balls, with 24 fours and two sixes.

Abidine Sakande took the wicket, with Jack McIver snaring the catch at midwicket as Pietersen, who had twice been dropped previously, was out before tea.

His performance was a clear reminder to the England selectors of his enduring quality ahead of the first Test with the West Indies, which begins in Antigua tomorrow.
