England batsman Kevin Pietersen has announced his retirement from all international limited overs cricket with immediate effect.

The England and Wales Cricket Board has said Pietersen will remain
available for consideration in future contract awards as a specialist
Test match player only.
"After a great deal of thought and
deliberation, I am today announcing my retirement from international
one-day cricket," Pietersen said in a statement.

"With the intensity of the international schedule and the increasing
demands on my body, approaching 32, I think it is the right time to step
aside and let the next generation of players come through to gain
experience for the ICC World Cup in 2015.

"I am immensely proud of my achievements in the one-day game, but
still wish to be considered for selection for England in Test cricket.

"For the record, were the selection criteria not in place, I would
have readily played for England in the upcoming ICC World Twenty20."
