Ton long time coming - Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen is relieved to score his first one-day ton for three years, saying it was a "long time coming" as England beat Pakistan by nine wickets to take their series lead to 3-0 in Dubai.

The batsman, who hit two sixes in 111 not out, shared 170 with skipper Alastair Cook, (80) in England's highest opening partnership against Pakistan.

Pietersen says he "hopes to build on" the performance when the series concludes on Tuesday.
