KP could return if Clarke quits

Kevin Pietersen has revealed that he would consider a return to international cricket if England and Wales Cricket Board chairman Giles Clarke resigned.

Kevin Pietersen has revealed that he would consider a return to international cricket if England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chairman Giles Clarke resigned.

The South African-born batsman was sacked by the ECB eight months ago and has since released a scathing autobiography where he voices his grievances.

"What would have to happen for me to be recalled by England?" Pietersen asks.

"Clearly, the boss would have to go. Clarke would have to go, and I've been hearing that could happen in the next few months. That's all hearsay, you never know. If there is a change at the top, there is potential, but we will wait and see. Giles pulls a lot of strings."

The statement was made at his latest interview to promote his autobiography. Pietersen also implicates former team director Andy Flower of having a powerful position within the ECB.

"In terms of cricket, I believe Andy Flower pulls a lot of strings too," added the 34-year-old.

"He has Giles Clarke in his pocket."
