British PM drawn into Pietersen debate

6:04 am on 8 February 2014

The British prime minister David Cameron has been drawn into the debate surrounding the future of England international batsman Kevin Pietersen.

England officials announced earlier this week that Pietersen's international career was over and that he doesn't feature in their plans for the future.

Former England all-rounder Sir Ian Botham has expressed his disgust while England captains Michael Vaughan and Nasser Hussain have demanded a detailed explanation, however Cameron was not so straightforward.
