ECB chairman says 'no promises' made to Pietersen
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Colin Graves, the incoming chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board, was adamant Friday that he made no promises to Kevin Pietersen about a possible return to Test cricket. Graves, whose tenure as ECB chairman started Friday, released a statement via the governing body's website in his first public response to claims from Pietersen that he had received "incredibly deceitful" treatment. Andrew Strauss, the new ECB director of cricket and Pietersen's successor as England captain, said Tuesday that a "massive trust issue" prevented the South Africa-born batsman's return, even though Pietersen is England's all-time leading run-scorer across all formats.
