CRICKET: Kevin Pietersen in doubt for third Test
2013-07-22 07:58:56 | (0 Comments)
England batting coach Graham Gooch admits the injured Kevin Pietersen may miss the third Ashes Test against Australia.
Pietersen had a scan on Saturday which revealed he has a left calf strain, and did not take the field for the remainder of the second Test which England won by 347 runs to take a 2-0 series lead.
Coach Gooch says Kevin has a small strain in his calf and there's a doubt over his selection for the next Test.
Pietersen suffered the injury while fielding in Australia's first innings on Friday and looked uncomfortable when he went out to bat later in the day.
He made only five runs before reaching away from his body and hitting bowler Peter Siddle to point.
It is only Pietersen's second Test since recovering from a knee problem that forced him to return early from the New Zealand tour in March.
The third Test starts on August 1 in Manchester.
