Strauss supports 'contrite' Pietersen

Former Test captain Andrew Strauss supports Kevin Pietersen's return to the England squad for the tour of India and believes Pietersen is "contrite".

Strauss, who retired from cricket in August, has forgiven Pietersen for sending "provocative" texts about him to South Africa players and says it is time England "move on".

He adds that England must now focus on beating India, with a four-Test series beginning on 15 November.
