Pietersen will return - Vaughan

Former England captain Michael Vaughan believes Kevin Pietersen "will get another chance" to play for England after being dropped for the third Test against South Africa over reports he sent text messages to Proteas players criticising Andrew Strauss.

Vaughan believes there have been problems between Pietersen and England's leadership team for "a couple of months now" and reckons it will take "a long time" before he returns to the national team.

Pietersen's omission from the England squad for the final Test at Lord's came at the end of a turbulent week in which he first hinted that he could retire completely from international cricket, only to back down on Saturday and commit to playing for England in all forms of the game.
