England Right-handed batsman, Kevin Pietersen has made a comeback to the England T20 squad against New Zealand, starting from next Thursday at The Oval.

He has been included in a 14-men squad for two T20 internationals against New Zealand.

Pietersen will play the second match to be held at The Oval on June 27.

Geoff Miller, England's national selector, said:
With an intense period of cricket coming up we are conscious that we need to manage the workloads of our players throughout the summer and this NatWest series gives an opportunity for players who have performed well in domestic cricket and on the England Performance Programme and with the Lions to step up and test themselves in an international environment.
"New Zealand are a talented limited-overs side and with a World T20 competition less than a year away this series gives us a chance to look at a number of different options."

England squad: Eoin Morgan (Middlesex, capt), Gary Ballance (Yorkshire), Jos Buttler (Somerset), Jade Dernbach (Surrey), Ravi Bopara (Essex), Danny Briggs (Hampshire), Michael Lumb (Nottinghamshire), Kevin Pietersen (Surrey), Alex Hales (Nottinghamshire), Boyd Rankin (Warwickshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), James Tredwell (Kent), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Luke Wright (Sussex)
