Alastair Cook: Hatchets can be buried
Alastair Cook has confirmed that the ECB is continuing talks with Kevin Pietersen about his return to the England team.
Pietersen was left out of the England squad to tour India following the text-messaging saga in the summer.
But negotiations continue about how best to re-integrate him into the team and captain Cook said he is hoping for a positive outcome to the talks for all concerned.
"Clearly the meetings have been going on in the last 48 hours - everyone seems to know about that," he said.
"As this process has gone on, clearly I'll say the same thing - we'll keep it behind closed doors and try to get the best possible outcome.
"We're all decent blokes in the camp and it's just important we get this process right. Obviously a lot's happened over the last two months and it's important to get it right so we can move on as England side altogether.
"Hatchets can be buried but as I said it's important the process is done right and correct."
