Pietersen out of Twenty/20
Tue, August 21, 2012 - 9:26 AM
Kevin Pietersen has been left out of the England squads for both the World Twenty20 tournament and the preceding one-day series against South Africa.
The 32-year-old was dropped for the third Test against South Africa after allegedly insulting Test captain Andrew Strauss in texts to the tourists.
England team director Andy Flower said: "There's unresolved issues of trust and respect which have to be resolved."
Pietersen had been expected to meet Strauss this week to discuss the matter but speaking after his side's defeat by South Africa in the third Test on Monday, the England captain said that as far as he was concerned that would not be the case.
