ICC extends selection deadline

The International Cricket Council has extended the deadline for World Twenty20 squads to be submitted by six days.

The 15-man squads originally had to be handed in by this Saturday, but the ICC has extended the deadline to the 24 August.

While a number of countries, including India, South Africa, Bangladesh and New Zealand, have named their 15-man squads, West Indies selectors are yet to officially announce the regional team.

That ICC’s decision potentially gives England more time to resolve tensions with Kevin Pietersen.

Pietersen, who was player of the tournament when England lifted the trophy in 2010, was not included in the original 30-man party after quitting limited-overs internationals in May.

However, he effectively reversed that decision earlier this month, making himself available to play for England in all forms of cricket.
