Pietersen to remain with Surrey
Kevin Pietersen has agreed a rolling deal with Surrey, which will keep him with the club until the end of his ECB central contact.
Pietersen joined Surrey ahead of the 2011 season following a brief loan spell with the county in late 2010, when he quit Hampshire and was then left out of the England one-day team. This new arrangement suggests he is unlikely to linger in the domestic game once his England days are over.
Pietersen made four appearances for Surrey - two first-class and two Twenty20s - last season between his England commitments. He captained Surrey against Cambridge MCCU, which was his comeback match after the hernia that ended his 2011 World Cup early.
"Surrey is a fantastic club and I have been really impressed with the environment and work ethic in place," Pietersen said. "Their recent success is well deserved and I look forward to working with them in 2012."
