English fast bowler and Twenty20 captain Stuart Broad yesterday disclosed he has not talked to Kevin Pietersen for more than 8 weeks, an assertion that hinted at just how fractured links between Kevin Pietersen and his English teammates has become.
Stuart Broad said he’d no communication with Kevin Pietersen since the test match against South Africa at Headingley at the start of August, the last time Pietersen played for England.
Pietersen was then dropped for the last Test of the series after sending a series of provocative text messages to rival South African cricketers. The breakdown in his connection with teammates and his ECB employers has put his international future in doubt.
However, Pietersen could yet take part in the upcoming tour to India, which begins in 2 weeks’ time, after agreeing a four-month central contract a week ago, subject to a “reintegration process”.
