Andy Flower happy with Kevin Pietersen
Monday 29 October 2012
Andy Flower is confident he will have no further problems with Kevin Pietersen after an apology from the batsman for his part in the recent falling-out.
The England coach brought Pietersen back into the squad for the tour to India and has been reassured by the early signs after they restarted their working relationship in Mumbai.
Flower said: "Kevin is coming back after a few problems that we had. I'm confident we will work together well from now on."
Pietersen, who has 88 Test caps to his name, apologised for his conduct in the row with the England management and signed a new central contract, initially for four months, but Flower cannot see any reason why that would not be lengthened.
Flower said: "I haven't thought much about the extension of his contract. We are focusing on playing well in India. I don't envisage a problem. We can work well together and we've already started. We've had some great success and some great times over the last few years."
