Nick Compton ‘preferred choice to fill Strauss’ opening slot’ during India tourLondon: Rookie batsman Nick Compton would open the innings along with captain Alastair Cook during their warm up game against India A at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, starting on Tuesday, and if the opening pair gets good success then the trend might follow throughout the Test series.

Andy Flower, the England team director, confirmed that Kevin Pietersen would go straight into the team and bat at No4 against India A after linking up with the squad in Mumbaia daily reports.

Pietersen, back in the team for the first time since August after the fall-out over text messages sent to South Africa players during the Test series with England, missed the training camp in Dubai because of his commitments with Delhi Daredevils in the Champions League T20.
