Kevin Pietersen’s dream of helping England defend their World Twenty20 title appeared to have been dashed when he was left out yesterday of an initial 30-man squad for this year’s edition in Sri Lanka. Pietersen, England’s man of the tournament when they won the World Twenty20 two years ago, recently retired from short format. KP wanted to continue to play T20s while opting out of ODI side. But England said the terms of his central contract meant he had to be available for all formats.
