Kevin Pietersen will play for England in their tour match against India 'A' tomorrow, according to reports.

Pietersen has not played for his country since it was revealed that he exchanged texts with members of the South African cricket team regarding his England teammates, but after a series of talks between Pietersen and England's management, the door was left open for the 32-year-old to return to international cricket.

The South African-born batsman was recalled to the England fold last week and it was announced on Sunday that Pietersen was to join up with the England squad in India after his Delhi Daredevils side were knocked out of the Champions League Twenty20 competition.

According to Sky Sports News, it now appears that Pietersen will be immediately thrust into the international limelight again with an appearance against India 'A' on Tuesday.

England begin their four-match test series with India on Thursday, November 15.
