Kevin Pietersen failed to heed Ravi Bopara's warning as his return to English cricket yielded five runs and Surrey were subjected to a five-wicket T20 Blast defeat by Essex at the Kia Oval.

Pietersen was teased by former England team-mate Bopara on Twitter earlier in the day, with the all-rounder telling him "don't let me get you out". That was just what happened though, as Pietersen was caught by Ryan ten Doeschate off a Bopara delivery for just five.
