Former all-rounder Andrew Flintoff has advised Kevin Pietersen and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to ‘sort it out and move on .

“I suppose it s up to the ECB and Kevin to sort it out. They need to get in a room, sort it out and move on because I imagine Andy Flower and his team want it resolved,” Flintoff was quoted as saying by zeenews.com.

Any side with Kevin Pietersen in it is a better side, whether that s the one-day side, Twenty20 or the Test side,” he added.

Kevin Pietersen had hinted at retirement saying after the second Test against South Africa that the third Test of the series could be the last of his career.

Earlier in the year, Pietersen had already announced retirement from limited-overs cricket.

Flintoff also said that Test cricket is the ultimate form of the game for him.

“For me Test cricket was the ultimate format of the game – you can have your IPL and Twenty20 but having success in Test cricket, and the satisfaction of performing well as a player within the Test team, was the ultimate. It s an honour to play for your country, I wish I was still able to do that,” Flintoff concluded.
