Kevin Pietersen's England career appears to be effectively over after media reports claimed he has not been selected for England's upcoming one day tour of West Indies and the World Twenty20 next month.
Pietersen's absence would inevitably spark further questions over his long-term involvement in the England set-up.
Pietersen's future has been unclear since the end of the disastrous Ashes series, while his turbulent relationship with team director Andy Flower was under the spotlight.
Flower's resignation earlier this month appeared to ease the pressure, however it now seems that Pietersen's services will not be retained.
