Highlights: Pietersen lights up Lord's

In total, Pietersen made five centuries at Lord's, with his first coming in 2006 against Sri Lanka. He also appears on the famous Honours Board for tons against West Indies, South Africa, and twice against India, including that famous 202 not out.
As well as his 15 Tests, Pietersen played in 10 ODIs and one T20 international at Lord's.
On 4 February 2014 it was announced that the South Africa-born player was no longer in England's plans - seemingly bringing an end to his international career.
