Speaking after his record innings on Monday, Pietersen said: “They say timing is everything. He [Strauss] has come in, there’s a new chairman [Colin Graves] on Friday or Saturday, there has to be a new coach, [Peter] Moores has gone.

“I’ve got to be careful what I say; it’s an interesting time, and what more can I do? I was told to go and get a county, I was told to score runs... I think I’m scoring runs.

“I’ve always said since my knee was sorted in Australia, after that first training session in Australia, I said that my knee’s good, and if my knee’s good, I’m going to play well.

“I played well in the Big Bash, I gave up a contract in India, I’m not playing for any money here – I’m dedicated to getting back my England place. I want my England place, and I think I deserve my England place.”
