Pietersen not named in T20 squad

LONDON – Kevin Pietersen has not been included in England’s 30-man squad for the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka, which features one-day captain Alastair Cook.

Pietersen, 32, quit limited-overs internationals in May after an impasse with the England & Wales Cricket Board, only to hint at a U-turn last week.

But negotiations with the board did not reach a resolution in time for him to be named in the preliminary squad.

Cook has not played a Twenty20 match for England since November 2009.
