Kevin Pietersen's plans were hit by a cancelled flight
Banished batsman Kevin Pietersen's plans to smooth things over with his England team-mates were hit for six by a cancelled flight.
The controversial cricketer had to call off meetings he'd planned to have with senior England players after getting stuck in South Africa, highlighting the importance of
travel insurance. With his flight delayed 24 hours and unable to switch flights KP had to contact England's management team to let them know he would not be able to get to Monday's meetings, designed to ease dressing room tensions.
The 32-year-old, who had been due to arrive back in Britain on Monday morning, had been planning to meet most of the team-mates with whom his relationship has become strained. Further meetings were planned for Oxford on Tuesday, once the cricketer was back in the country. South African-born Pietersen has scored more than 7,000 runs for England in 88 Test matches, including 21 centuries.
