Former England captain Kevin Pietersen will be criss-crossing the country meeting his fellow team mates and apologising to them personally.

The 32-year-old was axed from the England team in August on charges of sending “provocative” text messages to opposing players during the Test series against South Africa.

But after long negotiations Pietersen was offered a four-month fresh contract by the English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) but he must undergo a “reintegration” period before returning to the team.

The personal visit is a part of the deal that was struck between Pietersen and the ECB. Pietersen will be meeting Graeme Swann, James Anderson and Stuart Broad personally later this month.

The Sun reported that Pietersen has agreed to fly home from the Champions League event in South Africa. Pietersen will be representing Delhi Daredevils in the Champions League.
