But the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has held talks with Pietersen and could pick him for the tour of India.

"Pietersen has done everything he can to prove himself to England. He is committed. I have heard reports he needs to apologise publicly. That is a nonsense. He just has to go in to see the players. The players haven't been as rosy as has been reported; it is 70% Kevin. England need their best players - we have just seen that with the World Twenty20. You need players with the X-factor, especially going to India. Kevin has got that."
The player and ECB chairman Giles Clarke are expected to appear before the media in Sri Lanka.
Former England spinner Phil Tufnell believes Pietersen will be added to the
already named for the tour, which starts next month.
"I think Pietersen will go on the tour to India. [Captain] Alistair Cook wants to take his best side, and I think he'll get his way," said Tufnell.
England team director Andy Flower said on Tuesday: "The situation is ongoing and I think it's nearing an end now, hopefully in a positive way."
Asked whether Pietersen was missed, Flower said: "Of course, but he wasn't available for this tournament when we selected the side."
BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew expects an imminent resolution to the situation.

Agnew said: "It does appear that the first stage of Pietersen's reintroduction to the England camp will start sometime this week.
"We can also expect an assurance that England's commitments will come first. It will then be for the management and selectors to decide whether Pietersen will be a late addition to the team to tour India."
