Following a recommendation from the Selectors, ECB has awarded Kevin Pietersen a pro rata Summer Contract through to the end of the season.

Pietersen becomes the 13th Player on a ‘Central Contract’ as 12 players were awarded 12-month Central Contracts for the year from October 1 2004.

David Graveney, Chairman of Selectors, said: "By following up an outstanding ODI tour of South Africa with impressive performances in the NatWest one-day international programme, Kevin forced his way into the Test side and he fully deserves being upgraded to Central Contract status."
