Kevin Pietersen signs a record-breaking £1.3m deal to play for the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.

Kevin Pietersen has become England's highest-paid cricketer after signing a £1.3m deal with the Delhi Daredevils.

The deal breaks the record for the most lucrative IPL contract of a non-Indian, a record that Pietersen had previously shared with Andrew Flintoff.

Pietersen, who had previously represented the Deccan Chargers, will be captained by Indian international Virender Sehwag.

The England batsman said: "I can't wait to watch Viru from 22 yards."

The 31-year-old will begin his stint with the Daredevils immediately after England's tour of Sri Lanka ends in April.
