London: Jan 10, 2014

 

Controversial England batsman Kevin Pietersen‘s Indian Premier League (IPL) status may reportedly shed some light on his playing future with his country after the franchises announce their retained list for the forthcoming campaign.

 

On Friday. Pietersen’s interest in the lucrative Twenty20 tournament frequently strained relations with the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), although central contracts now contain leeway for IPL participation.

 

According to The Guardian, however, after the 5-0 humiliation in the Ashes, England may prefer its players to shun the IPL in favour of county cricket, and if the Delhi Daredevils, with whom Pietersen is affiliated, choose to extend the relationship, he could miss five County Championship fixtures.

 

However, if Pietersen is not selected by Delhi Daredevils, then it would open up the intriguing possibility of the 104-Test veteran making a very public case for a place in England’s summer Test plans.

 

Pietersen’s Surrey contract is linked directly to his ECB deal, automatically renewing when he re-signs and expiring when he does not, the report added.
