Sri Lanka wicketkeeper-batsman Kumar Sangakkara has revealed that former England batsman Kevin Pietersen is “coming back” to Surrey.
Although Surrey have confirmed about speaking to Pietersen, it is understood that no deal has been finalised as of yet.
However, Sangakkara remains convinced that Pietersen will return and even start catching the attention of the England selectors.
“I’m looking forward to playing at Surrey and working with (coach) Graham Ford, and KP’s coming back I hear so that’ll be very exciting in the dressing room,” Sangakkara told Sky Sports. “I reckon he (KP) will be fantastic anywhere he plays. He is just a magnificent player and he has been through some tough times.
“I’m sure that would have really shaped the way he is as a person and really had him thinking things through. I just think he’s a great player and anyone would be happy with such a great player coming back into your side.
“I’m sure he is looking forward to knocking on that (England) door and hopefully getting in.”
