Cape Town - Kevin Pietersen says that a future in commentary and broadcasting is an option for him after he retires. 

And, says the 36-year-old, it is something that comes easily to him.

Pietersen has been commentating for Channel 9 and SuperSport during the ongoing Test series between the Proteas and Australia.

He is in South Africa now where he will play for the Dolphins in Sunday's T20 Challenge clash against the Titans in Bloemfontein, but he will be heading back to Australia for the third Test in Adelaide, which gets underway on Thursday.  

"Maybe, I don't know. I enjoy it," Pietersen said in Durban on Friday when asked if he considered commentary a post-career option.

"I think it's a very easy job to describe what people possibly don't see, because of how current I am, and bring energy to a commentary box.

"That's my personality ... I'm not afraid to call a spade a spade and I think I understand the game.

"The key to commentary is not to tell the people what they can see, but rather explain what they can't see and what you think the captain is thinking, whether it be right or wrong.

"I think I've played enough cricket to understand and try and explain to people what they can't see."
