BREAKING NEWS: England batsman Kevin Pietersen has retired from all international limited overs cricket with immediate effect. He will remain available for consideration as a specialist Test match player only.
UPDATE: English cricketer, Kevin Pietersen has quit all forms of international (limited-overs) cricket. Effectively immediately. ‘KP’, as he’s known, will still remain available for test selection saying "I still wish to be considered for selection for England in Test cricket." The 31 year old has played in 127 ODI’s & 36 T20’s, since debuting in 2004, against Zimbabwe. Up until retirement he averaged 42 – in One Day Internationals and 38 in 20/20’s.
"After a great deal of thought and deliberation, I am today announcing my retirement from International One Day Cricket. With the intensity of the international schedule and the increasing demands on my body, approaching 32, I think it is the right time to step aside and let the next generation of players come through to gain experience for the ICC World Cup in 2015."
Hugh Morris (Managing Director English Cricket) said the England Cricket Board, was disappointed with the timing of Kevin’s retirement – but said that they looked forward to his continued contribution to test cricket. While acknowledging his achievements and efforts (towards limited-overs cricket), he remained disappointed with the timing of retirement – only four months off when England is due to defend its ICC World Twenty20 Title.
