Former England coach Andy Flower has been signed on as the batting consultant and mentor of the Peshawar franchise in the upcoming Pakistan Super League.

And if the Peshawar franchise gun for England’s discarded batsman Kevin Pietersen in the players draft this month it could be the first reunion between the two since Flower had to step down as head coach after the Ashes 2013/14.

Pietersen has already made his intention of participation in the PSL clear via a video message and is said to be among a top favourite for the five franchises in the T20 competition.

The PSL is due to be held in Dubai and Sharjah in February and the Peshawar franchise has announced former Pakistan bowling coach Mohammad Akram as their head coach and Flower as their batting consultant and mentor.

Pietersen was unceremoniously dumped by the England and Sales Cricket Board and team management after the Ashes post a public fallout particularly with Flower and has since said that: “Flower had it in for me since he took over.”

The discarded England batsman alongside West Indian Chris Gayle and Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi are among the top draw in the PSL players draft due to be held later this month.
