Kevin Pietersen is set to be offered a full central contract by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) after team director Andy Flower was impressed by the right-hander’s on and off-field behaviour and contribution in the historic Test series win in India.

Pietersen’s successful reintegration into England’s dressing room will be officially acknowledged with the award of his full contract at the end of the India tour. Flower confirmed that the extension of Pietersen’s four-month contract is all but a formality.

“The contract won’t be a problem, Kevin has been excellent in every way,” Flower said. “We don’t always get on with people all of the time, in any walk of life, and everyone has made an effort to make it work,” Flower added.
