Thursday's Day 1 action was slow-going for the disappointing crowd that turned up at the ground.

England amassed 224/4 in 90 overs, at a rate of 2.49/over as the wicket held no demons for Joe Root's visitors.

Pietersen played 104 Tests, 136 ODIs and 37 T20s for England, having been born in Pietermaritzburg.
