    Pietersen hopes to be back for NZ tour

    The out-of-favour England batsman tweeted on Friday.

    New Delhi: Out-of-favour England batsman Kevin Pietersen tweeted Friday that he hopes to make a comeback for England's tour to New Zealand in February 2013.

    In a reply to his friend Kiwi rugby player Dan Carter on the micro-blogging site, Pietersen tweeted: "Yep, @DanCarter DONE big guy. Hoping alls sorted & I'm on the NZ tour in Feb. If so I'll bring you a gun of a bat!"

    Carter, who had asked Pietersen for a new bat as the old one he presented had broken, also posted a picture of the broken bat on the site.

    "@kevinpp24 I'm keen 4 a new bat tho. Smashed ur last 1 u gave me."

    Pietersen, 32, is currently an expert commentator on TV in the ongoing World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.

    He also wished West Indies batsman Chris Gayle on his birthday tweeting: "A very happy birthday to my great mate @henrygayle! Who wants to see me interview him on ESPN Star Cricket? Please pressure him people!"
