Pietersen signs new Surrey deal
Friday 23 December 2011
England batsman Kevin Pietersen has extended his contract with Surrey until the end of his international career.
Now 31, the big-hitting batsman arrived at The Oval on loan from Hampshire late in 2010 and signed a one-year deal for 2011, but played only two first-class matches and two Friends Life t20 games for the county as they won the Clydesdale Bank 40 and were promoted to the First Division of the County Championship.
"Surrey is a fantastic club," said Pietersen. "I have been really impressed with the environment and work ethic in place."
Pietersen is centrally contracted and his appearances in domestic cricket have been restricted by England commitments in recent seasons.
