Pietersen: Morgan must be England’s game changer


Kevin Pietersen believes England can only make an impression in the World T20 in India if their skipper Eoin Morgan is in good form with the bat.

Morgan has extensive experience of playing in Indian conditions as he is a regular player in the Indian Premier League and Pietersen feels he must be his team's game-changer.

Speaking in a Q&A with the Telegraph, Pietersen said: "I think England's game changer at the World Cup has to be Eoin Morgan.

"He is captain, has played a lot of IPL cricket, is used to the conditions and with his experience batting at number four he has got to be the game changer."

Pietersen, who played a starring role when England won the World T20 in 2010, has tipped India, the West Indies, South Africa and Australia to be the top four sides at the global event.

England start their World T20 campaign against the West Indies in Mumbai on Wednesday.
