LONDON:- Kevin Pietersen's return to action for Surrey following his controversial England exit has been delayed due to a finger injury. Pietersen had hoped to play for Surrey in their Twenty20 fixture against Middlesex on Friday, but a statement on the English county's website said Pietersen would not be risked due to the finger problem. He is still to make his seasonal debut on the county scene and when he does, it will be his first game on home soil since his acrimonious parting of ways with the England team.–AFP
