(FILES) In a file picture taken on March 2, 2011 England cricketers Kevin Pietersen (L) and Andrew Strauss (R) run between wickets during their ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 match against Ireland at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. England coach Andy Flower on August 21, 2012 refused to say whether Kevin Pietersen still had an international future, after the star batsman was omitted from the squad for the next month's World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka. Pietersen was dropped for the final Test against South Africa following his admission he sent "provocative" text messages to Proteas players, with some allegedly critical of Andrew Strauss, England's Test captain.
