England coach Peter Moores has cooled suggestions that Kevin Pietersen could make a return to the national side.
Pietersen, 34, has since sought out a return to the domestic game, but Moores, who has fallen out with Pietersen in the past, does not believe that it will make any difference to his international aspirations.
ECB managing director Paul Downton has insisted on several occasions that Pietersen would not again be considered for selection.
"We're over here but it sounds like [Graves's quote] was taken out of context," PA quotes Moores as saying. "The policy on the KP situation has been made pretty clear by Paul."
Although Pietersen's chances of a return to the international fold look slim, England could reportedly be ready to recall Jonathan Trott to the Test side for the upcoming series against the West Indies.
