England coach Andy Flower reveals that Kevin Pietersen will be fit for all of the Three Lions' cricket in the summer.

England batsman Kevin Pietersen is expected to be fit for all of the Three Lions' cricket in the summer, according to coach Andy Flower.

Pietersen missed the third Test against New Zealand in Auckland with a knee injury after struggling in the opening two matches.

"Kevin has had a further scan, which confirms a bone injury and bone bruising, and he is being put in a brace for two weeks," Flower told reporters.

"We anticipate him playing a full part in the summer. He's been in some pain, but we hope he'll be ready to go by the start of the summer."

England face off against New Zealand again when the Kiwis travel to face Alastair Cook's side in May.
