Kevin Pietersen England return delights Alastair Cook

The new England Test captain Alastair Cook admits it's been a difficult couple of months but they now have a world-class player in Kevin Pietersen back in the dressing room.

Pietersen returns for next month's four-Test tour to India after resolving his public fall-out. England fly to a training camp in Dubai on Thursday without Pietersen, who is still on Champions League Twenty20 duty with the Delhi Daredevils.

Cook insists there are no problems within the dressing room over Pietersen's inclusion and now regards the long-running saga as over, as BBC Sport's Alison Mitchell reports.
