Pietersen could play for South Africa

South Africa born England batsman Kevin Pietersen could play for South African franchise kwaZulu-Natal Dolphins next month as he seeks a return to form ahead of the Ashes series this year.

Reports here said the out of form South Africa-born star, who began his first class career with the Durban outfit 13 years ago, hopes to play two SuperSport Series national four-day championship matches.

Kevin Pietersen has reportedly received clearance from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) but needs a “green signal” from Cricket South Africa, who must authorise international players appearing for local franchises.

The batsman is experiencing a difficult time on and off the pitch with a solitary half century for England this season and his last ton came against the West Indies more than a year ago.

England selectors axed him from the Twenty20 and ODI series against Pakistan this month, claiming he wanted to play as much cricket as possible ahead of the showdown with Australia.
