England ignore KP for World T20

London, July 18, 2012 Agencies:

Kevin Pietersen’s dream of helping England defend their World Twenty20 title appeared to have been dashed after he was left out of a provisional 30-man squad announced on Wednesday despite his insistance that he was available for the event.

In fact, last week he said he would also be open to an ODI return if his schedule could be less hectic.

Pietersen, England’s man of the tournament when they won the World Twenty20 in the Caribbean two years ago — their first major limited overs title — recently retired from all white ball internationals.


The squad: Stuart Broad (capt), James Anderson, Jonathan Bairstow, Gareth Batty, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Scott Borthwick, Tim Bresnan, Danny Briggs, Jos Buttler, Alastair Cook, Steven Croft, Steven Davies (wk), Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Craig Kieswetter (wk), Michael Lumb, Stuart Meaker, Eoin Morgan, Graham Onions, Samit Patel, Matt Prior (wk), Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Graeme Swann, James Taylor, James Tredwell, Chris Woakes, Luke Wright.

Aus, NZ name squads

Australia’s James Pattinson was omitted from the preliminary 30-player squad announced on Wednesday in Melbourne.  New Zealand too announced their 30 probables for the event.

Australia: George Bailey (capt), Travis Birt, Dan Christian, Pat Cummins, Xavier Doherty, James Faulkner, Aaron Finch, Ryan Harris, Ben Hilfenhaus, Brad Hogg, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Mitchell Johnson, Ben Laughlin, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Andrew McDonald, Clint McKay, Dirk Nannes, Stephen O’Keefe, Tim Paine, Rob Quiney, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Adam Voges, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Shane Watson, Cameron White.

New Zealand: Ross Taylor (capt), Michael Bates, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Neil Broom, Dean Brownlie, Colin de Grandhomme, Andrew Ellis, Daniel Flynn, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Roneel Hira, Anaru Kitchen, Tom Latham, Brendon McCullum, Nathan McCullum, Peter McGlashan, Andy McKay, Kyle Mills, Adam Milne, Tarun Nethula, Rob Nicol, Jacob Oram, Tim Southee, Daniel Vettori, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling, Kane Williamson, Luke Woodcock, George Worker.
