Pietersen clears air with England

KEVIN PIETERSEN returned to South Africa last night after holding clear-the-air meetings with England captain Alastair Cook and squad members.

THE talks, held in Oxford, were part of Pietersen's reintegration into the England team following the text message scandal.

England head out to India a week today and Cook remains unsure whether Pietersen will be added to the Test squad.

"The meetings have been going on and the process is well under way," said Cook. "We all know how important team harmony is and team ethos is and that showed when we were successful."
