KP left out of England’s limited overs side

2012-07-19 00:00

LONDON — Kevin Pietersen’s dream of helping England defend their World Twenty20 title appeared to have been dashed after he was left out of a provisional 30-man squad announced yesterday.

Pietersen, England’s man of the tournament when they won the World Twenty20 in the Caribbean two years ago — their first major limited overs title — recently retired from all white ball internationals.

The South Africa-born batsman wanted to continue to play Twenty20 matches while opting out of 50 overs one-day international fixtures.

But England said the terms of his central contract meant he had to be available for both of those formats and that the only alternative was to opt out of all limited overs international cricket, which he duly did.
