KP to miss India ODI series

Saturday, 27 August 2011

London – Kevin Pietersen was the big name missing from the England squad announced on Friday for the upcoming five-match one-day international series against India.
The first-choice batsman has been rested as part of the England and Wales Cricket Board's policy of 'workload management'.
Ben Stokes, who made his England debut in Thursday's win over Ireland, has been retained alongside a clutch of returning stars who were excused the trip to Dublin.
Uncapped pair Jos Buttler of Somerset and Alex Hales of Nottinghamshire have been called up to the Twenty20 squad.
England squad
Alastair Cook (capt), James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Jade Dernbach, Steven Finn, Craig Kieswetter, Eoin Morgan, Samit Patel, Ben Stokes, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott
