ICC World Twenty20 2012
Pietersen Not in England's Provisional Squad for World Twenty2018-Jul-2012 13:21:00 GMT
London: Kevin Pietersen has not been included in England's 30-man squad for the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, which features England one-day captain Alastair Cook.
Pietersen, 32, quit limited-overs internationals in May after an impasse with the England & Wales Cricket Board, only to hint at a U-turn last week.
Cook has not played a Twenty20 for England since November 2009.
Squads for the World Twenty20 must be cut to 15 players by 18 August, one month before the tournament starts.
Players from outside the original 30 can be drafted in, but once the 15-man squad is announced only injured players can be replaced.
Exasperated by the demands of international cricket's schedule, Pietersen retired from the one-day and Twenty20 formats after the ECB insisted all centrally contracted players must make themselves available for both teams.
