England are likely to recall batsman Kevin Pietersen for England s ODI tour to India to be played next month.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) will name the squad for the five-match series and a Twenty20 match on Tuesday.

England selectors rested Pietersen during the recently concluded ODI series against India and the two Twenty20 fixtures against the West Indies.

According to reports, with the 2012 World Twenty20 taking place in Sri Lanka, England will be keen to utilise any practice on slow, turning sub-continental tracks and would want Pietersen in tow unless they considered him dispensable for that event.
