No contract yet for Pietersen

LONDON – Kevin Pietersen has received his biggest snub yet from England’s cricket officaldom. He has been omitted from the list of players awarded central contracts for the 2012-13 season by the ECB.

Pietersen had been left out of the England team since the Leeds Test against South Africa following the revelation that he sent messages containing derogatory remarks about the England captain, Andrew Strauss, to members of the South Africa touring squad. It later emerged that Pietersen’s relationship with several members of the England squad had deteriorated to an unhealthy level.

In releasing a statement containing the names of the ten centrally contracted players, the ECB said: “In respect to Kevin Pietersen discussions are ongoing and they remain private.”

It is understood that Andy Flower, the England coach, and Pietersen met last weekend, but that there is some way to go before a resolution to the issue is found.
