Speaking on BBC Radio Lancashire, the Prime Minister said: "I am an enormous fan of Kevin Pietersen and I have had some of my most enjoyable times watching him tonking the ball all over the park.

"It is not often I have a sympathy for Piers Morgan but I thought he was making quite a powerful argument this morning on my radio."

But Mr Cameron insisted he didn't want to interfere in the England Cricket Board's decision making, saying: "I will let the England selectors pick the England team, I think I had better stay out of this one."
