In full: Kevin Pietersen's apology to England team-mates and supporters
Wednesday 03 October 2012
Today it was announced Kevin Pietersen would be re-intergrated with the England team. Part of that process involved the batsman apologising. Here is his statement in full...
"I'd just like to take this opportunity to apologise to my team-mates, all the England supporters for the situation that has arisen in the last couple of months.
"Thankfully we have drawn a line under it and it's time to move forward.
"Although it's already been covered in the statement, I want to make very clear that at no time did I ever share tactical information with any of the South Africans or the South African management.
"Playing cricket for England is the pinnacle of any cricketer's career and I want an opportunity to do that again as soon as possible.
"Some of my proudest and best moments of my life have been in an England shirt and I want them to continue for as long as possible.
"I'm entirely committed to completing the reintegration process we have agreed over the coming weeks and resuming my England career in all formats, hopefully until the World Cup in 2015, as long as my body allows.
"I want my son growing up seeing me play for England and I hope one day he will put on an England shirt himself."
