Kevin Pieterson Will Play In T20 In England @OVAL

Kevin Pietersen set to play one-off T20 at the Oval

"Oval is one of my favourite grounds in the world, so I couldn't be happier to be playing there," Pietersen said.

Kevin Pietersen, former England batsman, is set to play a one-off Twenty20 match at the Oval in London in September. This will be Pietersen's only appearance in England this year after he decided to not play in the domestic season.

Pietersen will feature in a Cricket United charity match on September 22. Michael Vaughan, the former England captain, and Mark Butcher will coach the two teams, Surrey All-Stars XI and a Cricket United XI, respectively, that will also see Jason Roy, the current England opener, in action.

"Cricket United is a fantastic cause and the Kia Oval is one of my favourite grounds in the world, so I couldn't be happier to be playing there," Pietersen said on Wednesday (June 29). "I'm sure there will be a big crowd and I look forward to finding out who else will be playing."

The funds raised from the charity game will be given to Lord's Taverners, Chance to Shine, the PCA Benevolent Fund and the KP24 Foundation.

ECB wouldn't stop him playing domestic blast though surely? Crowd-puller.

But I didn't know he was injured.
