London: England Twenty20 captain Stuart Broad has been named Test captain Alastair Cook`s deputy for the India tour, which starts in Mumbai on October 30 with the opening three-day warm-up match.
Meanwhile, head coach Andy Flower confirmed that Kevin Pietersen, added to the tour squad only last week after his fall-out with the team hierarchy during the summer series against South Africa, will come straight back into the side to bat at No 4.
"Whatever label you want to put on it, Kevin is coming back into the team after a few problems that we had," the Daily Express quoted Flower, as saying.
"I am confident we`ll work together well from now on. I don`t envisage any problems," he added.
