Brisbane - England star batsman, Kevin Pietersen, has pledged to help the victims of a flash flood that has devastated large parts of Queensland.

Writing on his social networking Twitter page, Pietersen said: These floods in Queensland are horrific!! Is there anything we as sportsmen could do to help??

Before going on to write: I'm prepared to auction off one of my Ashes winning shirts & one of my bats personalised to the highest bidder.

Pietersen then upped the ante by promising: My auction gets better! On top of the bat & shirt, I will give 2 tickets to our Perth ODI on 6 Feb and I will pay for flights & 2 nights accom to the highest bidder from anywhere in the world.

Flash floods have killed nine people and left 66 missing in Queensland, with the city of Brisbane bracing itself for further disaster on Tuesday.

England, in Australia for the Ashes, retained the coveted urn by winning the five-Test series 3-1. The first of two Twenty20 Internationals will take place in Adelaide on January 12, before the seven scheduled ODIs begin on January 16.
