Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen admits that he "would love" to be included in the national side again in the future.

Kevin Pietersen has admitted that he "would love" to play international cricket for England again in the future.

The ECB excluded the batsman from all formats of the game with England following the team's whitewash in the winter Ashes series in Australia.

The 34-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I would love to play for England again, I have still got hope. I don't think it might happen, I live in hope every day, I'm 34 and I'm young.

"I can still play and I have a good resume and if things change one day I would gladly accept the opportunity because I love playing for England, if I didn't I would have retired, I would love to play again.

"I've never lost interest in playing for England, I loved it and every single day I wanted to improve. I had ambitions and I had goals and they are still there."

Pietersen featured in 104 Tests for England after making his debut in 2005.
