CSA approves Pietersen`s return to Dolphins

Johannesburg: South African domestic side Dolphins` request to let out-of-form England batsman Kevin Pietersen play two matches for his native club next month has been approved by the cricket board.

The South African-born England batsman, going through a lean patch, will look to use the matches against Warriors (October 7-10) and Titans (14-17) in the domestic SuperSport Series to regain his form ahead of the Ashes in Australia.

Pietersen made his first-class debut for the Dolphins, erstwhile Natal, in 1997 before pursuing a career in England.

The aggressive batsman was recently dropped from England`s Twenty20 and one-day teams last week and hasn`t scored an international century in 18 months.
