Kevin Pietersen has revealed his injury frustrations, as the England batsman continues his rehabilitation from a serious knee problem initially sustained on tour of New Zealand.

Pietersen was required to miss the final Test in the three match series against the Black Caps in March, and has since been ruled out of the return fixtures next month and the Champions Trophy in June.

The England and Wales cricket board hope Pietersen will be back in action come the middle of June, in preparation for the eagerly anticipated Ashes the following month, and the 31-year-old is desperate to pull on his pads again.

Pietersen wrote on his official Facebook page: "All I want to do is be able to go for a run & bat.. 6 weeks sidelined and counting!"

The earliest likely competitive England return for Pietersen will be in the mini-series of Twenty20 matches against New Zealand, the first of which is on June 25, before a pre-Ashes tour match against Essex.

This summer's Ashes begins at Trent Bridge on July 10 and concludes at The Oval in August, with other Tests being held at Lords, Durham and Old Trafford, before a reverse series in Australia starting in November.
