Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen has reportedly entered the draft for this year's Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Twenty20 tournament.


Pietersen, who was discarded by England in February following the woeful Ashes tour, has already agreed to captain Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League, while also renewing his county contract with Surrey.

According to the BBC, Pietersen said that as soon as he was approached by the organisers for the CPL, which takes place in July and August after the conclusion of the IPL, he knew that it was something that he could take part in.

CPL chief executive Damien O'Donohoe hailed Pietersen's entry, saying that as the South Africa-born player is a born entertainer, the fans will love watching him and the younger Caribbean players will get the opportunity to learn from his vast experience.

The six franchises will build their squads from a pool of more than 200 players in the auction at a bar owned by former West Indies captain Chris Gayle, the report added.
