England batsman Kevin Pietersen looks to be on track to be in the England team for the Ashes after he tweeted pictures of himself in the nets.
The 32-year-old injured his knee when touring New Zealand in March and was forced to return home.
Pietersen accompanied the photos on his Facebook page saying: "Back in the nets...BOOM".
He did not require surgery for the bone bruising but has missed the two match home series against New Zealand and will also miss the Champions Trophy in June.
It is looking hopeful though, that he will be fit in time for the main event of the summer, the Ashes, starting July 10, at Trent Bridge.
The return of Pietersen is likely to mean bad news for either struggling opener Nick Compton or Jonny Bairstow as someone will have to drop out.
This year sees a back-to-back Ashes series with five Tests in England this summer, before another five in Australia starting November 21 in Brisbane.
