James Tredwell to captain England as Kevin Pietersen returns

Kent spin bowler James Tredwell will captain England in Thursday night’s Twenty20 international against New Zealand at the Oval.

The 31-year-old, who took over the Kent captaincy at the start of the season, steps in with Eoin Morgan injured.
