Flower, KP set for talks
London - Kevin Pietersen will meet with England team director Andy Flower on Saturday to discuss his international future, according to the BBC website
The batsman, 32, was dropped for the third Test against South Africa for reportedly sending text messages about team-mates to opposition players.
Pietersen has since apologised and spoke with Andrew Strauss either side of the ex-England skipper's resignation as Test captain
New Test captain Alastair Cook will be kept updated about the talks.
England have time to solve the situation, because they do not need to name their Test squad for the tour to India until early October.
Cook, who succeeded Strauss as Test captain this week and is currently involved in the one-day series against South Africa, says he plans to get involved in discussions "in the coming weeks".
Reports suggested Pietersen's texts criticised Strauss, but although Pietersen apologised for what he described as "provocative" messages, he was left out of England's final World Twenty20 squad.
Strauss, who had been England captain since 2009, said his decision to step down
was made "in the best interests of himself and his team".
He denied the Pietersen issue contributed to his retirement
However, Michael Vaughan, who captained England between 2003 and 2008, said it was likely to have been "the tipping point".
