Controversial batsman Kevin Pietersen rejected a four-month contract offer from the ECB,hours before his ouster from the 16-member squad for the Test tour of India.

According to The Daily Telegraph,the contract included waiving his rights to any future legal action in employment disputes with the ECB,issuing another public apology to the South African side and pulling out from a contract with Asian-based broadcaster ESPN to provide studio analysis from the World Twenty20.

However,the South African-born batsman on Monday turned down the offer as it came with no future assurances. According to the four-month deal,Pietersen would have had to attend England’s training camp in Dubai at the end of October,but would not have been a part of India’s Test tour. “He was told the Dubai camp would provide a chance to begin the healing process with his team-mates. But Pietersen believes that process will happen much quicker during a Test-match tour rather than a training camp,” the paper added.
