England batsman Kevin Pietersen will miss the upcoming two-Test series against New Zealand as he continues to struggle with a knee injury.

Pietersen was forced home early from the tour of New Zealand due to his injury problems and had hoped to be ready to face the Black Caps on home soil this summer.

However, Pietersen will now have to wait a little longer for his return to international cricket, with the ICC Champions Trophy and an Ashes series on the agenda later on in the summer.

The right-hander's knee woes also mean that he is missing the ongoing Indian Premier League.

A brief ECB statement confirmed: "Kevin Pietersen has been ruled out of the upcoming Test series against New Zealand as he continues his recovery from significant bone bruising to his right knee.

"Pietersen will have a repeat scan next week to determine when he is able to resume training."

The first Test of two against New Zealand gets underway at Lord's on Thursday 16th May, with the second game scheduled for Headingley starting on Friday 24th May.
