Star England batsman Kevin Pietersen on Saturday expressed his desire to continue playing cricket till the 2015 World Cup.

“I’m as fresh as ever in terms of wanting to score runs. I’d love 10,000 Test runs, I really would. But you’ve got to stay in form, stay injury free — I’ve been hampered by injuries the last few years,” Pietersen was quoted as saying by metro.co.uk

“I wouldn’t say I’m getting on, I’m only 33, so I’d love to play for another three to four years Test cricket. I’d love to play the 2015 World Cup as well. So there’s quite a few things I’m really looking forward to,” he added.

Talking about England’s third consecutive Ashes victory, Pietersen said, “It’s a great feeling. You always enjoy it when you’re winning — we’re 3-0 up. We play really tough cricket against each other. The Ashes is what you play cricket for.”

“It’s been a great series and it bodes well for a fascinating series Down Under as well. We’re going to have to play some very good cricket because this is a good Australian side. We’ve won some very, very key stages over the last four Tests and that’s where it counted,” he concluded.
