Stylish England Star Kevin Pietersen is out of England’s Twenty20 squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka next month. The career of Pietersen looks almost over after he admitted sending provocative text messages.
“He played superbly in our last Twenty20 World Cup, but the circumstances that exist at the moment mean that he can’t be selected for us,” England team director Andy Flower told Sky Sports television.
In 2010, Pietersen was awarded the player of the tournament and it was due to his superb performance, England won the T20 World Cup 2010. This time around, he will surely be missed.
England Twenty20 Squad for World Cup 2012: Stuart Broad (captain), Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Ravi Bopara, Danny Briggs, Jade Dernbach, Alex Hales, Tim Bresnan, Craig Kieswetter, Michael Lumb, Steven Finn, Graeme Swann, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel and Luke Wright.
