Kevin Pietersen has been selected for England's opening match of its Indian tour, his first for his country since sending derogatory texts to South Africa's players during the test series in August.
Pietersen will bat at No. 4 in the three-day game against India "A" at Brabourne Stadium from Tuesday, the first of three warm-up matches before the two-test series against India begins Nov. 15.
Pietersen was dropped in August for sending text messages that were reportedly critical of former captain Andrew Strauss. His recall comes after conciliatory talks with coach Andy Flower and senior players.
Flower says "it's nice to see him back in the team. I'm confident that we'll work well together."
Alastair Cook is the new England captain on the tour following Strauss' retirement in August.
