CRICKET: Kevin Pietersen revealed his "disappointment" today after being left out of the England Test squad to tour India.
Pietersen was omitted from a 16-man touring party, the latest indication from the England and Wales Cricket Board that he faces a long road back before he represents his adopted country again.
Without Pietersen, England have called up two uncapped batsmen - Joe Root and Nick Compton.
Pietersen responded by releasing a statement which claimed he had gone to "great lengths to reach a reconciliation with the ECB" and said that he "remains available for England."
