Forgiven Pietersen to be offered new contract by England
Kevin Pietersen will be offered a new England contract, says head coach Andy Flower.
Pietersen currently has a four-month deal with the England and Wales Cricket Board after he was not initially picked for the tour of India.
Batsman Pietersen was dropped in August for sending “provocative texts” to South Africa players.
“The contract won’t be a problem,” said Flower. “Kevin has been excellent in every way.”
Pietersen agreed a four-month deal at the end of September, in order to take part in the tour of India, which ended on Monday with an historic first Test series victory since 1984-85.
“It’s been really good fun and he should be very proud of the way he’s operated out here, both as an individual and as a player,” said Flower.
