England didn't want him for their India Test squad but Melbourne Renegades are keen on signing Kevin Pietersen to play in the Big Bash Twenty20.

The franchise's chief executive Stuart Coventry is set to fly to Sri Lanka, where Pietersen is working as a pundit at the World Twenty20, in a bid to land the England batsman. Sydney Sixers are also interested.

Coventry said: 'If he is available we'd love to grab him, but there's a lot of curve balls in play at the moment about his availability, whether he wants to come to Australia, whether he wants to come to Melbourne or Sydney.'
