ECB Facing $1.6M Legal Threat Over Kevin Pietersen Contract
Published September 28, 2012
'ALL SORTED': In London, David Clough wrote that Pietersen's central contract "could be reinstated at any time, even after Monday's deadline." Pietersen recently wrote on his Twitter feed about his optimism that the situation is "all sorted," and he hopes to be back in the England fold in time to tour New Zealand early next year. His well-chronicled disputes with the ECB "appeared initially to centre on his wish to play a full Indian Premier League campaign next spring," at a time when England have Test match obligations. He subsequently committed himself to play for England, whenever selected, in all formats, but was nonetheless dropped from the team for last month's Lord's Test against his native South Africa, because of the content of "provocative" text messages he had sent to opposition players during the previous match at Headingley (INDEPENDENT, 9/27).
