KP worried about Antigua lights

Kevin Pietersen has expressed his concerns over the lights in Antigua after England's Twenty20 victory over Middlesex on Sunday night.

England beat the domestic Twenty20 champions by 12 runs in a low-scoring warm-up encounter which saw several catches dropped by both teams.

Catches were also dropped during the Stanford Superstars' victory over Trinidad & Tobago in the Series opener on Saturday night and the facilities on offer are clearly a worry to the England skipper.

"I am as concerned about the lights as I am about the wicket," said Pietersen. "It is the same for both teams and that is why I had the boys out in the dinner break and after the game.

"We spent 20 minutes doing that at the end, there aren't going to be many opportunities to catch, so we will do it again in the break and at the end of the game against Trinidad because it is a huge factor.

"There could be someone under a $20m catch on Saturday."

England play Trinidad & Tobago on Tuesday night as the build-up continues to Saturday's winner-takes-all cash bonanza.
